Announcements: Three SCCPSS Schools Make Improvements Necessary to Exit State Focus Lists


Three SCCPSS Schools Make Improvements Necessary to Exit State Focus Lists 


The Georgia Department of Education has announced the list of schools that have exited the Priority and Focus Schools lists, due to recent across-the-board CCRPI increases and Georgia’s rising graduation rate. Three Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools made the improvements necessary to exit the Focus list.

Focus Schools represent the lowest-performing 10% of Title I schools based on achievement gap data. That data examines the gap between a school’s lowest performing 25% of students and the state average, and the progress those students are making.  In order to exit the list, a Focus School must no longer meet the definition of a Focus School and demonstrate a 2.5 point increase in the 3-year average of Achievement Gap scores. 

The Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools meeting that criteria are Butler Elementary and West Chatham Elementary, along with Thunderbolt Elementary School. Thunderbolt Elementary closed at the end of the 2016-17 School Year and its students now attend the new School of Humanities at Juliette Gordon Low Elementary School.
