The Georgia Charter Schools Association congratulates the Academy for Classical Education, Amana Academy, Resurgence Hall Charter School, School for Arts-Infused Learning (SAIL), and Scintilla Charter Academy for receiving the Georgia Department of Education’s 2022-2023 Distinguished Title 1 School designation. GCSA also applauds DeKalb Agriculture Technology and Environment (DATE), DeKalb PATH Academy, and KIPP STRIVE Primary for making GADOE’s 2022-2023 list of Title 1 Reward Schools. These high-performing and greatest improving schools were among 154 Georgia schools recognized by GaDOE as Distinguished and Reward Schools.
Distinguished Schools are among the highest-performing 5% of Title I Schoolwide and Title I Targeted Assistance schools based on the combined ELA and math content mastery scores from the statewide assessments of the most recent year.
Reward Schools are among the greatest-improving 5% of Title I Schoolwide and Title I Targeted Assistance schools when comparing the content mastery scores from the most recent two years of statewide assessments.
Schools must be Title I to be eligible for the Distinguished School and Reward School designations and must not currently be CSI or TSI support-identified schools.
