The Fulton County District Attorney’s Office recently released the findings of its grand jury investigations from November and December 2013. The inquiry focused on what Fulton County Schools leadership has learned from recent issues affecting neighboring school systems, such as inappropriate test administration, loss of accreditation and school board conflicts, and how it will prevent such issues from occurring. After four hours of discussion with Superintendent Robert Avossa, School Board President Linda Schultz and other school leaders, the grand jury reported that it had very positive impression regarding the state of the Fulton County School System and its future.
Outstanding students, staff and/or schools were honored for state, national or international awards.
