Georgia created a new accountability system called the College and Career Ready Performance Index, which was released May 7, 2013. The index replaces the Adequate Yearly Progress scores and will show parents and the public how schools are performing. The scores are 1 to 100 points _ the higher the score the better the performance. Scores are based on three major areas: Achievement, Progress and Achievement Gap. Each school can also add up to 10 points in "challenge points" if it has a significant number of poor students, English learner students or disabled students. Source: Georgia Department of Education.
