3 local schools get Reward status
Georgia Department of Education
Three area schools earned state "Reward" status this year, according to a list released Tuesday by the Georgia Department of Education. The designation is one of four - Reward, Priority, Focus and Alert - given to schools under Georgia's new accountability system, which replaced the federal No Child Left Behind Act's Adequate Yearly Progress as a measuring stick last year. Brooklet Elementary School, for the second consecutive year, was included in the state's "Highest Performing" category.
