Announcements: Tybee Island Maritime Academy One of Seven Schools Eligible to be Named 2018 Georgia Charter School of the Year!

Title

Tybee Island Maritime Academy One of Seven Schools Eligible to be Named 2018 Georgia Charter School of the Year! 

Body

The Georgia Charter Schools Association has announced that Tybee Island Maritime Academy is one of seven schools across the state eligible to be named the 2018 Charter School of the Year.
 
Award finalists will be announced in early 2018 at the Annual Georgia Charter Schools Conference. The 2018 Georgia Charter School of the Year Award is given by Georgia Charter Schools Association but will be selected by a committee made up of non-Georgia Charter School Association staff members.
 
The winner of the 2018 Charter School of the Year Award will receive a generous grant award from the Coca-Cola Foundation.
In order to qualify to be eligible for the award, schools must be a GCSA member school in good standing that serves students in Georgia. They also have to demonstrate academic excellence as measured by their performance framework or College and Career Ready Performance (CCRPI) data. Eligible schools must have scored 80 or higher on the CCRPI. The school has to have been open for five or more years and has to demonstrate operational sustainability and sound fiscal practices as evidenced by unqualified annual audits.
 
Charter school of the year candidates must be accredited or in the process of being accredited by either SACS-CASI or GACS. Eligible schools also have to demonstrate autonomous governance through the use of waivers as well as authority over academic, financial, and personnel decisions.
