HENRY COUNTY, GA – The second highest level of state recognition for a Title I school has made its way to the students, staff, administrators, and community of Stockbridge Elementary. This latest award honors the school as a Title I High-Progress Reward School.
The Georgia College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) defines a High-Progress Reward School as only the top 10% of Title I schools in Georgia making the most progress in improving the performance of the “all students” group, over three years on statewide assessments.
Already a Georgia School of Excellence, Stockbridge Elementary found here, received their certificate at a school ceremony where informed they would receive $3,000 to provide teachers and staff bonuses and/or to purchase instructional-related supplies and services for the school.
“Stockbridge Elementary is honored to receive this award,” said Principal Bonita Fluker. “This recognition speaks to the commitment, hard work, collaboration, and partnership of all stakeholders involved with our school. We continue to stand firmly on the belief that our students can be the best because they are the best.”
Previously Stockbridge Elementary was recognized as a Platinum Award winner by the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement, and as a Title I Distinguished School using a former awards program.
“The students, staff, and community of Stockbridge Elementary exemplify excellence as they continue to make significant gains for student success,” said Dr. Ethan Hildreth, Superintendent of Henry County Schools found here. “We are proud of their accomplishments and thank each member of the school team for their hard work that brings such positive results.”
