Four Clayton County Schools make Georgia list of distinguished schools.

Four Clayton County Schools make state’s list of Title I honors

Four Clayton County Schools have made the list of Georgia’s Title I honors program, the district said Monday. 

Elite Scholars Academy and M.E. Stilwell School of the Arts were placed on the Georgia Department of Education’s 2019 list of Title I Distinguished Schools while Mt. Zion Primary School and Suder Elementary School earned a spot as Title I Rewards Schools.

Distinguished Schools rank among the top five percent of Title I schools according to their College and Career Ready Performance Index or CCRPI score.

Rewards Schools recognize schools that demonstrate the greatest improvement among five percent of Title I and Title I Assistance schools. They also must not have greater than 50 percent red achievement flags for economically disadvantaged, English learners or students with disabilities subgroups across all grades.

“I join with all members of the Clayton County Public Schools family and our community stakeholders in congratulating these four schools on this accomplishment,” Clayton Superintendent Morcease Beasley said. “This is another example of how our efforts to deepen and advance a culture of high performance in our schools and countywide are paying off.”
