CCHS Named State High-Progress Schoolarch 2, 2017 – The Georgia Department of Education today released its 2016-2017 list of Title I Reward Districts and Reward Schools.

“These schools and districts are working against the odds to provide an excellent education for their students,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “This is so much more than numbers or data. We are talking about changed lives for thousands of students. I can’t overstate how proud I am of every teacher, administrator, and parent who worked to make that happen.”

The “Reward District” designation is awarded to school systems with the highest absolute performance over three years for the “all students” group on the statewide assessments, among districts of their size. Title I Reward Districts are named in four categories: large districts with 10,000 or more students, medium districts with 4,000 to 9,999 students, small districts with 2,000 to 3,999 students, and extra-small districts with fewer than 2,000 students. Each Reward District receives a grant of $25,000 in additional federal funds.

Reward Schools are Title I schools that fall into one of two categories:

A Highest-Performing School is among the five percent of the state’s Title I schools with the absolute highest performance, over three years, for the “all students” group on the statewide assessments. A school may not be classified as a Highest-Performing School if it has been identified as a Priority or Focus School.
A High-Progress School is among the 10 percent of the state’s Title I schools making the most progress in improving the performance of the “all students” group over three years on the statewide assessments. A school may not be classified as a High-Progress School if it has been identified as a Priority or Focus School.
President's Volunteer Service AwardCongratulations to Savonte Wilson who has been honored with the President's Volunteer Service Award for his community service. Savonte has put in many volunteer hours at his church working with choir, the worship team, the thrift shop, grounds maintenance and the children's ministry since 8th grade. Savonte also has served as a counselor at Winshape Camps for two years. After attending the camp himself, he wanted to give back and allow others to have that experience.

FFA Career Development WinnersOn the weekend of February 4th, FFA students participated in state competition at Fort Valley State University. The team comprised of Kaitlyn Hart, Logan Moore, and Mary Logan Tostenson were named the state championship Marketing team. These students will represent Georgia in the National Marketing Plan Career Development Event to be held in Indianapolis in October. The Marketing Plan CDE calls for students to act as a marketing firm and identify an agricultural company that could use assistance marketing a product they sell. These students, along with advisement from Mrs. Adrienne Smith, put in countless hours and weeks of work on their marketing plan for local produce. Kaitlyn, Logan and Mary Logan did a tremendous amount of research, writing, and studying to prepare their marketing plan. Their plan scored 96 out of a possible 100 points. The next step was to come to the competition at FVSU and make their oral presentation. The judges took on the role of the company being represented. Following the 15 minute presentation, the judges asked questions from the client’s perspective, allowing the students to showcase the research they had done, justifying their decisions and promoting their business.

CCHS had student winners in several National Championship categories at the October 2016 as well, evidence of our strong agriculture programs.
