Fifteen schools in the DeKalb County School District (DCSD) were recognized for generating some of the best student achievement statewide in 2017.

The 2017 Single Statewide Accountability System awards, given by the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement, is a list of Georgia schools that have exhibited high student performance or academic growth as measured by the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) from the three most recent school years.

“Achievement is our number one goal, and the recognition of these 15 schools is something we are immensely proud to note,” said Superintendent/CEO R. Stephen Green. “We have increased the number of schools on the SASS list from the prior year, and we look forward to continuing this trend. Our ultimate goal is for all schools to rise to this level of performance.”

Awards are given for performance student performance and/or academic growth. The rating system is awarded by percentile compared to other schools in the state: bronze (93rd percentile), silver (95th percentile), gold (97th percentile), and platinum (99th percentile).
