PATH Academy is incredibly proud of Franly , who came in 1st place for the state of GA in the 3rd-5th grade category!! He was invited to the prestigious 755 Club in Atlanta, where he was awarded a medal, a plaque, a certificate, and a professional foam version of his poster for his efforts. Go Franly!!

Georgia Department of Education announces 2014 Reward Schools
September 16, 2014 – The Georgia Department of Education today released its 2014 list of Reward Schools, designated as part of the state’s waiver from the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). Each Reward School is a Title I school that falls into one of two categories:
A Highest-Performing School is among the five percent of the state’s Title I schools with the highest absolute 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, Focus, or Alert School.
A Highest-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, Focus, or Alert School.
“The schools on this list represent some of the finest efforts being put forth in Georgia education,” State Superintendent Dr. John Barge said. “The educators, parents, students, and communities who came together to move these schools forward should take great pride in the results.”
