Leveraging Schedule Analysis for CCRPI

From Georgia DOE's CCRPI Indicators specifications, we can use Schedule Analysis to create reports for Middle and Elementary grades Predictor for High School Graduation using existing reports.

For Middle School, Grades 6-8

Middle School, Grades 6-8

For Elementary School, Grades K-5

Elem School, Grades K-5

According to the DOE's course file specifications 23.00170 is considered to be Reading/Grade 5 course.

In Schedule Analysis, you can easily identify students in grades 5 or 8 who may be missing one or more course in any of the required core content areas for High School Graduation predictors.
