CCRPI Suggests Carroll County School District Outperforming State

The latest College & Career Ready Performance Index Data from the 2014-2015 school year released this week, shows the Carroll County Schools District overall and Carroll County’s high schools outperformed the state.
The data also suggests that district middle and elementary schools performed in line with the state.
But, Assistant Superintendent Of Teaching & Learning, Dana Harman said Wednesday, it’s a little late to put this ‘new’ data to use in improving the district.
“… because this information is over a year old, it has little value in our school improvement efforts,” Harmon told WLBB Radio. “The state has made this accountability process very cumbersome and convoluted, and it took them a year to make these final calculations.”
Harman says the district is currently administering the 2016 state assessments. She says that data will be more important in moving forward with the school improvement process.
She says the CCRPI released this week simply confirmed what administrators already knew.
“Overall, we were pleased with the scores,” she said. “It gave us some areas to think about improving and some areas that showed the good work we are doing for our students.
The Carroll County School System had an overall score of 75.7. The statewide score was 75.5.
Carroll county high schools averaged 76.5 compared to 75.8 for the state.
As far as middle schools, Carroll County’s scored 71; just below the state average of 71.2.
The state average for elementary schools was at 76. In the Carroll County district, the average was 75.8.
