CCSD Superintendent delivers State of District address

Nicole Jordan

Clarke County School District released its state of the district address on Friday which highlighted schools’ progress this school year. CCSD superintendent Dr. Robbie Hooker discussed areas of improvement across CCSD elementary, middle and high schools.

Hooker reported that the district’s College and Career Readiness Performance Index, or CCRPI, test scores saw overall improvements in 2023. Content mastery in schools, which is an element of the CCRPI, also increased from 2022 to 2023, but still falls below the state average. Hooker responded to this by emphasizing continued progress.

“The district continues to maintain an emphasis on rigorous instruction and additional resources and support for teachers and students to help close those gaps, and we are moving forward.”

Hooker also stated that the district graduation rate and four-year rate both declined from the 2021-2022 school year and fell nearly ten points below the state average, which Hooker calls “not acceptable.” However, CCSD schools also beat the state average in their Closing Gap scores in 2023, which measured CCRPI improvements.
