  • Great news! South Effingham Elementary School is a Georgia Beating the Odds School. So what does that mean?  The Beating the Odds analysis predicts a range within which a school’s CCRPI (College and Career Ready Performance Index) score is statistically expected to fall – given the school’s size, grade cluster, student mobility, and student demographics.  If an individual school’s actual CCRPI is above the predicted range, then that school beat the odds. With a CCRPI score of 89.2, SEES beat the odds. Way to go students, teachers, staff, and parents!
