TCSS schools named on state’s Reward list
Recently, the Georgia Department of Education released its list of 2020-2021 Reward Schools and two Troup County elementary schools made the list – Franklin Forest and Rosemont.
TCSS announced the news via a press release Wednesday.
Schools who receive this honor are Title I schools making the most progress in improving student performance.
“While we are focused on ensuring all schools have the support and resources they need to continuously improve, it is incredibly important that we also recognize and celebrate when schools are doing well,” said State School Superintendent Richard Woods.
“I wish to congratulate the staff and students of this year’s Reward Schools – during a time of challenges, they have worked hard and they have succeeded.”
A Reward School is among the 5 percent of Title I schools in the state that is making the most progress in improving the performance of all students over the most recent two years on the statewide assessments.
Because assessments were not administered in the 2019-2020 school year, this year’s list is based on 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 data.
