Members of the Whitfield Board of Education are expected to hear a report on the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) Monday night at their meeting.

The meeting is set for 6:30 p.m. at the school system’s central office at 1306 S. Thornton Ave. in Dalton. A called work session is at 5:30 p.m.

The CCRPI is a system used by the state Department of Education to evaluate the effectiveness of schools. It ranks schools on a scale from 0 to 100 by looking at test scores, how many kids are graduating on time and how the school is helping low-income students, among other benchmarks.

School officials say board members are also expected to accept donation checks to pay for parking lot improvements at Dug Gap Elementary School, tennis court improvements and a new book room at Valley Point Middle School, science lab improvements at Southeast Whitfield High School and more band instruments at Eastbrook Middle School.
