Several SEGA Schools Make State ‘Reward Schools’ List

A handful of schools across southeast Georgia have reason to celebrate after the state’s education agency recognized their significant improvement over the last two years.

The schools were named to the Georgia Department of Education’s ‘Reward Schools’ List. 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 2019-20 school year, this year’s list is based on 2018-19 and 2019-20 data.

This year, 157 schools in 77 school districts were identified as Reward Schools. Those across southeast Georgia include:

“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,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “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 school may not be classified as a Title I Reward School if it is also identified for Targeted Support and Improvement (TSI) or Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI).​
