    UPDATE (12/2/19) - The Governor’s Office of Student Achievement (GOSA) has released its annual list of Turnaround Eligible Schools. Nine (9) Fulton schools were included on the 2018 Turnaround Eligible Schools list.

    Seven of those schools have been removed from the list for 2019. Schools from Fulton removed from the Turnaround Eligible Schools list include:

    • Asa G. Hilliard Elementary School (2017 & 2018)
    • Feldwood Elementary School (2017 & 2018)
    • Love T. Nolan Elementary School (2018)
    • Parklane Elementary School (2017 & 2018)
    • Paul D. West Middle School (2017 & 2018)
    • Ronald E. McNair Middle School (2017 & 2018)
    • Woodland Middle School (2017 & 2018)

     

    By focusing on school needs through systemic root cause analysis and then developing school-based support plans with consistent monitoring, staff and schools have raised achievement and growth for all students.

    The Turnaround Eligible Schools list is calculated annually by GOSA. The list includes schools with performance in the bottom five percent of the state based on their three-year average College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) score. For 2019, schools with a three-year CCRPI average of 57.0 and below are included. Nontraditional and state special schools are excluded from the list.
