January 26, 2018 – The Georgia Department of Education today released Financial Efficiency
Star Ratings for schools and school districts in Georgia. To view the ratings,
for school-level and here
for district-level, or use the CCRPI
The Financial Efficiency Star Rating provides a
measure of a district’s per-pupil spending in relation to the academic
achievements of its students. Specifically, the rating is based on a three-year
average of per-pupil spending, which is then associated with the district’s CCRPI
score. Each district receives a rating ranging from one half-star to five
stars; a five-star district can be described as having strong academic outcomes
and lower levels of expenditures in comparison with other districts.
requires that the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement, in coordination
with the Georgia Department of Education, create a financial efficiency rating.
The rating must be based upon five stars.
This is the third release of Financial Efficiency
Star Ratings for districts, and the first release for individual schools.
All school districts have been given an opportunity
to provide a response or additional information which they believe will assist
their constituents in understanding the expenditures included in the
calculation and the effect on the district’s rating. To view the ratings along
with district responses, visit the CCRPI
