The partnering families of the Atlanta Families’ Awards for Excellence in Education have decided to postpone the awards ceremony scheduled for March 4. Superintendent Dr. Beverly L. Hall and the partners made this recommendation because they felt that a decision to go forward would be perceived by many as minimizing the investigation surrounding the CRCT irregularities. While the investigation is pending, it was not deemed an appropriate time to move forward with the awards ceremony. Therefore, the ceremony is being postponed until May or early in the next school year, depending on the completion of the investigation. However, the partners felt it was important to award the $2,500.00 project money to the 2010 honorees in support of their students and their achievement.
