After being removed from the Georgia Department of Education’s priority school’s list earlier this summer, Ingram-Pye Elementary School is back on the list.
Priority schools are in the lowest 5 percent of Title I schools. Some schools, which were previously listed as priority schools a few months ago, closed and bumped Ingram-Pye up onto the list.
“Are we disappointed? Yes. However, over the past three years, the team at Ingram-Pye has made significant gains in student achievement,” said Sylvia Hooker, assistant superintendent of district effectiveness. “As the [Georgia] DOE communicated to us, Ingram-Pye ‘was on the cusp’ of not being re-designated. We will continue making every effort to provide the school’s faculty and staff with the additional support needed to keep their initiatives and momentum in the area of school improvement moving forward.”
