Four Cherokee County School District schools have been honored by the Governor for academic progress and success!
Avery Elementary School and R.M. Moore Elementary School STEM Academy earned top Gold Awards and Creekview High School won Silver in the “Greatest Gains” ratings announced by Gov. Nathan Deal. These awards recognize only 112 schools statewide that earned a three-year average CCRPI (College and Career Ready Performance Index) Progress Score ranking in at least the 93rd percentile.
Bascomb Elementary earned a Silver Award in the “Highest Performance” ratings, which recognize only 78 schools statewide that have earned a three-year average CCRPI Achievement Score ranking in at least the 93rd percentile. This is the third consecutive year for Bascomb to be honored… and it has moved up a level from last year’s Bronze award!
“While it’s student progress and success that drives our teachers and school leaders, we’re so proud of them and their students for this achievement and grateful for the support of our School Board, staff, parents and partners,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said, noting that he’s pleased to see schools from throughout CCSD recognized including a Title I school: R.M. Moore. “We’re focused on continuous improvement, and this honor recognizes that commitment throughout our community.”
Winners receive a certificate to display at their school. The Cherokee County School Board and Dr. Hightower will recognize CCSD’s winners at the Jan. 17 School Board meeting.
