The Georgia Department of Education is releasing the 2020-21 list of Reward Schools and Rome and Floyd County Schools made the grade.
A Reward School is among the 5 percent of Title I schools in the state that is making the most progress in improving the performance of all students over the most recent two years on the statewide assessments.
Elm Street Elementary and Pepperell Primary were among the 157 schools in 77 school districts that made the list as did McHenry Primary, which has since closed.
Because assessments were not administered in the 2019-20 school year, this year’s list is based on 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 data.
