District increases number of Title I Distinguished Schools in 2010

Up from 27 to 34 schools earn title based on student achievement


JONESBORO – The District is strengthening its grasp on academic achievement. Georgia Department of Education named 34 district schools as Title I Distinguished Schools based on student performance for 2009-2010. District schools are recognized for making Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for three or more consecutive years. Church Street Elementary and Morrow Elementary have earned this distinction since the recognition program began.


“Our district continues to move forward in providing quality instruction for children in Clayton County,” said Superintendent Edmond Heatley. “This recognition of the hard work of our students and staff, bolstered by the support of our parents and community partners is our encouragement to achieve excellence. We are very proud of the accomplishment of these schools and pledge a continued focus on earning this distinction for all of our schools.”


Eighty-two percent of district schools achieved AYP during 2009-2010. This translates to 50 campuses. The district serves 50,000 students in 70 campuses and programs.


The Board of Education will honor the 34 schools at its next regular board meeting on Monday, Feb. 7.The listing of schools and their consecutive years of AYP appears below.
