Some elementary schools in Sandy Springs saw decreases in College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) scores as the Georgia Department of Education today (April 21) released results from the 2013 and 2012 school years. Dunwoody Springs, High Point and Lake Forest elementary schools all fell from their 2012 scores, while Sandy Springs’ middle and high schools all saw gains.

The statewide accountability system was implemented in 2012 to replace the No Child Left Behind Adequate Yearly Progress measurement. Results from 2012 were recalculated and released today based on feedback from education partners and the public.

Statewide, both elementary and middle schools saw increases overall, while high school scores saw a dip. Overall, Atlanta Public Schools and Fulton County Schools increased scores at all three levels, while DeKalb fell in all three.

Below are results from 2013 and 2012 for Sandy Springs schools in the Fulton County Schools system:
