JACOB G. SMITH ELEMENTARY IS NAMED ONE OF THE BEST IN THE NATION

 

U.S. Secretary of Education, John B. King, Jr., announced today that Jacob G. Smith Elementary School has been named a 2016 National Blue Ribbon School. Jacob G. Smith is one among 279 public and 50 private schools nationwide receiving this honor…one of only 10 in the state of Georgia.

 

Schools are nominated for the award by the state department of education, and then complete a comprehensive application about school practices. Schools may apply for status as Exemplary High Performing—among the top schools in a state—or Exemplary Achievement Gap Closing—schools making the fastest progress in the their state in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups.  

 

Former Principal Andrea Burkiett and current Principal Vernon Cole will represent Jacob G. Smith at a two-day awards ceremony this November in Washington, D.C., to celebrate their hard-won achievements.
