North Georgia News has reported that Union County High School in Blairsville Georgia, has achieved a Gold Award under Georgia’s Single Statewide Accountability System (SSAS). The accountability is based upon the students performance on Georgia curriculum exams and Adequate Yearly Progress status.
The Governor’s Office of Student Achievement Executive Director Jennifer Rippner Buck was quoted as saying, “It is my honor to congratulate your school as a winner in the 2008 Single Statewide Accountability Systems Awards. Your hard work and that of your students, faculty, and community has earned your school a Gold Award for making great gains in student achievement.”
There are more than 275 Georgia public schools that are being recognized for improvement and achievement during this school year, however ONLY 4 High Schools in Georgia received the Gold Award.
Union County High School 1 of 4 to win the Gold Award!
I would like to congratulate Principle Ed Rohrbaugh, his entire faculty and staff, as well as all the students for their hard work and dedication to making our schools here in Union County better, and for their tireless efforts as they continue to strive for perfection. Thank you for a job well done.
