Six schools in Rockdale County Public Schools (RCPS) – one-third of schools in the district – have been named on the Georgia Department of Education Reward Schools list, an honor given to top-performing Title I schools. Barksdale Elementary and Lorraine Elementary are listed as “Highest Performing” schools. C. J. Hicks Elementary, Flat Shoals Elementary, Pine Street Elementary and General Ray Davis Middle School are listed as “Highest Progress” schools. Most of these schools have been named Reward Schools for multiple consecutive years.

“I am extremely proud of our 2017-18 Reward Schools,” says Interim Superintendent Shirley Chesser. “To have a third of our schools recognized in either the top 5 or top 10 percent of all schools in the state is a tremendous honor for the schools and the RCPS district as a whole. I commend the hard work and commitment of our teachers, support staff, leaders, students, and parents to maintaining world-class performance and continuous improvement.”

Reward Schools fall into one of two categories:

Highest Performing Reward Schools:  Barksdale Elementary, Lorraine Elementary

  • Top 5% of Title I schools
  • Highest 3-year average Content Mastery category performances (CCRPI)

Highest Progress Reward Schools:  C.J. Hicks Elementary, Flat Shoals Elementary, Pine Street Elementary, General Ray Davis Middle

  • Top 10% of Title I schools
  • Highest 3-year average Progress scores (CCRPI)
