12/06/19: TCSS Schools Named to Distinguished and Reward Schools Listing

Recently, the Georgia Department of Education released its list of 2019-2020 Distinguished and Reward Schools. Three Troup County School System (TCSS) elementary schools made the list:

 

  • Long Cane Elementary – Distinguished School
  • Franklin Forest Elementary – Reward School
  • Rosemont Elementary – Reward School

 

“It is an honor to see our schools recognized for making progress and great improvements on this year’s GMAS. It shows we are on our way,” said Dr. Brian Shumate, TCSS Superintendent.   

 

To receive a distinguished school designation means that a school is one of the highest-performing Title I schools. They are among the top five percent of Title I Schoolwide schools and Title I Targeted Assistance schools in Georgia.
