ATLANTA, GA (WALB) - The Georgia Department of Education announced Tuesday that 61 schools are no longer on a list of schools that needed significant improvement in their performance rates.
Five of those schools are in the WALB viewing area.
Monroe High School, Americus Sumter 9th Grade Academy, and Americus Sumter High School were all removed from the "Priority" list.
Seminole County Middle/High School and Len Lastinger Primary School in Tifton came off the "Focus" list.
"We continue to see that underperforming schools can improve and move the needle for their students, even when they face difficult odds," State Superintendent Richard Woods said. "And we've seen once again that intensive, intentional partnerships between schools, districts, communities and our Department can equip schools with the resources they need to improve student achievement."
Here is the complete list provided by the Department of Education-
