Tattnall County schools honored by State

Tattnall Journal
State Superintendent of Schools Kathy Cox officially named Georgia’s four Title I Distinguished Districts, two National Title I Distinguished Schools and 896 Georgia Title I Distinguished Schools at the State Board of Education meeting recently. The following Tattnall County Schools were recognized: Collins Elementary School, Collins Middle School, Reidsville Elementary School, Reidsville Middle School, Glennville Middle School.

“These districts and schools are a prime example of the impact high expectations, hard work and collaboration can have on student achievement,” Superintendent Cox said. “I’m thrilled to recognize the educators, students and parents in these schools and school districts.”

Title I schools have a significant population of students who are economically disadvantaged and receive federal money to assist with the education of these students. The two National Title I Distinguished Schools are among the total 896 Georgia Title I Distinguished Schools.

“These 896 schools don’t accept excuses,” Superintendent Cox said. “There are high standards for students and high expectations for teachers. These schools are focused and determined — and they are getting results.”

Title I Distinguished Schools that have made AYP for three consecutive years are awarded a certificate, while those who have made AYP four or more years receive a monetary award, paid for out of federal funds.
