11 APS schools earn 13 outstanding achievement awards from the state

A total of 11 APS schools earned 13 outstanding achievement awards from the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement (GOSA) for their academic achievement during the 2009-10 school year. The schools are being recognized under Georgia’s Single Statewide Accountability System (SSAS), which awards schools based on their performance on state curriculum exams and Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) status.  The schools receive awards on four levels – platinum, gold, silver and bronze – and in two categories – greatest gains and highest performance, based on students’ results on the Criterion-Referenced Competency Test (CRCT).  The School of the Arts at Carver and Carver Early College high schools were recognized in both categories. (Here’s the AJC article.)
