A total of eight of Fayette’s elementary and middle schools have been named Title 1 Distinguished Schools by the Georgia Department of Education.
Schools are given “distinguished” status based on having made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) three or more years consecutively. Since all of Fayette’s schools receiving the honor have met AYP six or more years in a row, they will each receive a monetary award, paid out of federal funds, as well as a certificate recognizing their achievement.
Both North Fayette Elementary and Robert J. Burch Elementary have met AYP for 12 consecutive years and will each receive a $1,484 award. Both schools have been recognized as distinguished for 10 years.
Fayette Middle, Fayetteville Intermediate, Hood Avenue Primary, Inman Elementary and Oak Grove Elementary have made AYP for eight consecutive years and will each receive a $742 award. These schools have been recognized as distinguished for six years.
Flat Rock Middle has made AYP for seven consecutive years and will receive a $742 award. The school has been recognized as distinguished for five years.
