Snelson-Golden Middle School has been removed from the Priority and Focus Schools list, according to a news release from the Georgia Department of Education.
SGMS was identified by the GaDOE as a priority school based on achievement data from all core content areas, as a part of the waiver from No Child Left Behind.
The school’s removal from the list means that it no longer meets the definition of a Priority or Focus school and has met the required achievement criteria, according to the release.
“The Snelson-Golden family of educators and learning support personnel has exhibited a commitment to helping all students achieve high academic performance and to meeting other indicators necessary to exit the Focus Schools classification,” Liberty County School System Superintendent Dr. Valya S. Lee said. “The SGMS team’s resounding success provides a shining example of how hard work and determination can reap enormous rewards. I am proud of the faculty, students, and staff for a job well done, and I look forward to many more successes in the future.”
