Two Clarke County schools make statewide list of low performers

Two Clarke County schools are on a list of 175 low performing schools statewide, identified as needing additional support to improve student performance this school year.

Alps Road Elementary and Classic City High School are both Title I schools where at least 40% of the students are from low income families, and are listed as schools needing support.

Typically these schools are selected because they have very low performance on the state's College and Career Ready Performance Index or have a graduation rate of less than 67 percent.

116 CSI-designated schools will receive additional support directly from the Department of Education's Office of School Improvement. The schools are eligible for additional funding and receive specialist leadership and instructional support.
