The College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) is Georgia's statewide accountability system to measure schools and school districts on a 100-point scale based on multiple indicators of performance. According to the Georgia Department of Education, as part of Georgia’s state plan for the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) – the replacement for No Child Left Behind – the state was able to make improvements to the CCRPI calculation. The 2018 CCRPI is the first to use the new calculation – meaning comparisons between the 2018 CCRPI and any other year are not possible or valid.

As part of the CCRPI reports, the Georgia Department of Education also released the 2017 School Climate Star Ratings (a scale of 1-5, with 5 being the highest) for local schools. While it is reported alongside the CCRPI, it is not included in the calculation that produces school and district CCRPI scores. 22 Forsyth County schools scored a 4, while 13 schools scored a 5 on the Climate Star Rating.
