West Side, Sawyer Road Are Reward Schools

The Georgia Department of Education named West Side Elementary a Highest-Performing School and Sawyer Road Elementary a High-Progress School.

The Georgia Department of Education named West Side Elementary a Highest-Performing School and Sawyer Road Elementary a High-Progress School.

“These schools are shining examples of what we can achieve in public education in Georgia,” said State School Superintendent Dr. John Barge. “I want to take what’s working at our Reward Schools and replicate that in every school in the state. These are the schools making education work for all Georgians.”

A Highest-Performing School is a Title I school among the 5 percent of Title I schools in the State that has the highest absolute performance over three years for the “all students” group on the statewide assessments.  

A Highest-Performing School must have made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for the “all students” group and all of its subgroups in 2011. A school may not be classified as a Highest-Performing School if there are significant achievement gaps across subgroups that are not closing in the school.

A High-Progress School is a Title I school among the 10 percent of Title I schools in the State that is making the most progress in improving the performance of the “all students” group over three years on the statewide assessments. 

A school may not be classified as a High-Progress School if there are significant achievement gaps across subgroups that are not closing in the school.
