MOULTRIE — State Superintendent of Schools Kathy Cox recently announced the winners of the inaugural Superintendent’s Distinguished Achievement Awards.

These awards honor schools that had the highest achievement and greatest improvement on state curriculum tests. A certificate has been sent to the winning schools acknowledging their achievements.

"It is so important to acknowledge the achievement and progress of our schools,” Cox said. “These awards are just a token of our appreciation for the hard work that goes into teaching and supporting students every day. Congratulations to all the winners!”

Stringfellow Elementary was honored as a one of ten schools in the state having the highest percentage of improvement in second grade reading. Its CRCT scores for second grade reading increased by 18.6 percent with a total of 77.8 percent of the students meeting or exceeding the standards on the 2008 exam.

“This recognition is well-deserving,” said Colquitt County Schools Superintendent Leonard McCoy. “Our second grade students, teachers, and staff have worked hard and I applaud their success.”

The State Superintendent’s Distinguished Achievement Awards are based on the performance of students on the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT), the Georgia High School Graduation Tests (GHSGT) and the End-of-Course-Tests (EOCT).
