Two Baldwin County schools, Baldwin High School and Lakeview Primary, have been named Reward Schools by the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE). A Reward School is among the top five percent of Title I schools in the state that is making the most progress in improving the performance of all students over the most recent two years on the statewide assessments. According to the GaDOE, 157 schools in 77 school districts were identified as Reward Schools this year.
“I am very proud of our faculty, staff, students, and parents from both schools. This is a testament to the overall hard work that is happening in our classrooms and I am confident we will continue to see an upward trajectory in overall student learning and achievement,” said Dr. Noris Price, Superintendent.
“While we are focused on ensuring all schools have the support and resources they need to continuously improve, it is incredibly important that we also recognize and celebrate when schools are doing well,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said via news release. “I wish to congratulate the staff and students of this year’s Reward Schools – during a time of challenges, they have worked hard and they have succeeded.”
At the July 20th school board meeting, the board recognized both schools for their achievements.
