More than 60 Atlanta Public Schools and DeKalb County schools are among those the Department of Education considers the lowest performing in the state.

The schools appeared on the Georgia Department of Education’s list of “priority” and “focus” schools released today.

These lists are the new, revised versions of schools deemed failing under the federal No Child Left Behind Act.

Schools in other metro school districts, including Cobb, Fulton and Gwinnett, also appear on the lists.

In a written statement, State School Superintendent Richard Woods said the state Department of Education would “work with the schools identified to ensure they have the resources they need to provide a quality education for their students.”

These schools rank in the lowest 5 percent of high-poverty schools in terms of academic achievement.
