A Cherokee County School District elementary school has been named a Georgia Title I Distinguished School!
R.M. Moore Elementary School STEM Academy has achieved the elite recognition awarded only to the top 5% of Title I schools in the State based on its students’ academic success and progress last school year. Title I schools are those that serve higher populations of students who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.
“We’re so proud of R.M. Moore’s students, teachers and community for this honor that recognizes their hard work and dedication,” Cherokee County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said. “Our Title I schools serve students who come to school with the greatest needs, which makes this achievement even more commendable.”
Georgia’s Distinguished Schools, including R.M. Moore, now are eligible to apply for the National Distinguished Schools Award; each state has the opportunity to select two schools for the national recognition.
“These public schools are among the very best in the state and are doing extraordinary work on behalf of their students and communities,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “I extend my thanks and congratulations to every teacher, administrator, staff member, student, parent, and community partner who contributed to their success.”
The Cherokee County School Board and Superintendent of Schools will recognize the school’s leadership team at the Jan. 17 Board meeting.
