Walton County School District announced that the Georgia Department of Education recently named both Atha Road and Walker Park elementary schools Title I High-Progress Reward Schools. This is based on a three-year average of their CCRPI progress scores.
According to Callen Moore, spokesperson for WCSD, a High-Progress School is a school among the top 10 percent of Title I schools in the state that are “making the most progress in improving the performance of the ‘all students’ group over three years on the statewide assessments.
“This is the second consecutive year that both Atha Road and Walker Park Elementary Schools have been named High-Progress Reward Schools by the GaDOE,” Callen said.
“I congratulate Atha Road and Walker Park Elementary Schools for once again being recognized by the State for helping all students achieve at higher levels,” said Superintendent Nathan Franklin. “This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our administrators, teachers and staff.”
