Area schools make list

ATLANTA -- The Georgia Department of Education has released its list of the state's top Title 1 schools -- including a handful from Southwest Georgia.

According to the department's website, the top category is reserved for schools with the highest performance or the biggest academic gains by students in the last three years.

A "Highest-Performing School" is a Title I school among the 5 percent of Title I schools in the state that have 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.

No area schools made the "Highest Performing School" list.

A "High-Progress School" is a Title I school among the 10 percent of Title I schools in the state that are 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, according to the DOE website.

Six area schools made the "High Progress" category, including Clay County Middle School, Lee County High School, Miller County High School, North Mitchell County Elementary, Calhoun County Middle/High School and Thomasville High School.

Those two schools were missed when we put together the story. The omission has been corrected in the online version and a correction will run in Saturday's print edition. Sorry about that.

Usually the Herald does a great job of reporting on DCSS issues. I am confused about why they do not report the status of the school where Rev. Heard's outreach program spent a million dollars for student tutoring. IT SLID .........More than 30 places. Of course other stats about it are much worse.

Lets see how many jobs/bussinesses come to Albany if Rev. Turd can get elected by write in over a white woman who already won. I believe this could turn out to be the final nail in Albanys coffin.
