2017-18 CCRPI Scores Released
The Georgia Department of Education has just released the 2018 College & Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI) scores for all schools.  The College and Career Ready Performance Index – CCRPI – is Georgia’s tool for annually measuring how well its schools, districts, and the state are helping students achieve their goals. It provides a comprehensive road map to help educators, families, and community members promote and improve college and career readiness for all students.
Our CCRPI score for the 2017-18 school year is a 95%. This score cements Vanderlyn as the top ranking K-5 school in the DCSD for the second consecutive year!   This score is a direct correlation to the high levels of teaching and learning that permeate our school culture, as well as a testament to teacher effectiveness. Overall, we have taken very decisive steps to implement instructional initiatives that allow all students to perform to their highest learning potential.
