Four Cherokee County School District schools have been recognized by the Governor for academic success and progress!
Avery Elementary School earned its second consecutive top Gold Award, Holly Springs Elementary School STEM Academy won Silver, and Sequoyah High School won Bronze in the “Greatest Gains” ratings announced by Gov. Brian Kemp.  These awards honor only 130 schools statewide that earned a three-year average CCRPI (College and Career Ready Performance Index) Progress Score ranking in at least the 93rd percentile.  

Bascomb Elementary for the second consecutive year earned a Silver Award in the “Highest Performance” ratings, which recognize only 105 schools statewide that have earned a three-year average CCRPI Content Mastery Score ranking in at least the 93rd percentile.  This is the fourth year in a row for Bascomb to be honored.

“Congratulations to the educators whose hard work guided students to the academic success recognized by these honors,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said.  “It’s outstanding to see schools across our District celebrated, as it highlights our School Board’s dedication to ensuring equity and access for all students to learn, achieve and thrive.”

Winners receive a certificate to display at their school.  The Cherokee County School Board and Dr. Hightower will recognize CCSD’s winners at the Jan. 16 School Board meeting.
