BROOKS COUNTY, GA (WALB) –A south Georgia school system is getting $50,0000 to help bridge the achievement gap between students.
 

 

Brooks County Schools received a Title I Distinguished District award.

The results of the CRCTs and the Georgia High School Graduation tests were used to determine the achievement.

Brooks County scores closed the gap between economically disadvantaged students and non-economically disadvantaged students.

 

 

 

"It validates that here in Brooks County we believe that every child can succeed that every child can meet those high academic standards and we are here to put that support system in place for them to be able to do that," said Tonya Healy, Brooks County Schools Title I Director.

The money will be used for programs to benefit students.
