BES Chosen As A "Highest Performing" School
Brooklet Elementary School was chosen as a "Highest Performing School" by the Ga. Dept. of Education for the second year in a row last week. According to the GADOE website, "A “Highest-Performing School” is a Title I school among the 5% of Title I schools in the State that has the highest absolute performance over three years for the “all students” group on the statewide assessments. A Highest-Performing School must have made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for the “all students” group and all of its subgroups in 2011 and 2012. A school may not be classified as a Highest-Performing School if there are significant achievement gaps across subgroups that are not closing in the school.
“These schools are shining examples of what we can achieve in public education in Georgia,” said State School Superintendent Dr. John Barge. “I want to take what’s working at our Reward Schools and replicate that in every school in the state. These are the schools making education work for all Georgians.”
