Area AYP Results
Friday, 23 July 2010

July 23--  There's good news and bad news when it comes to the Annual Yearly Progress (AYP) reports of area schools from the Georgia Department of Education.

The good news is that eight area schools made AYP and four schools are classified as Distinguished Schools for making AYP multiple years in a row.

The bad news is that seven area schools failed to make AYP this year.

Three schools in the Toombs County system which didn't make it are Lyons Upper Elementary, Toombs County Middle School and the high school.  Both Lyons Primary School and Toombs Central Elementary are Distinguished Schools.

Another Distinguished School is Montgomery County Elementary School, however, the other two schools in the system did not make AYP.

In Treutlen County, Treutlen Elementary continues as a Distinguished School, but the middle and high school in Truetlen missed AYP.

All but one of Vidalia's schools made AYP.  J.R. Trippe Middle School retains its Distinguished School title, but Vidalia High School came up short.

School Principal Dr. Garrett Wilcox says they've been working this summer to improve scores in English, math and graduation tests.

"We re-tested in July and provided some remedial test prep to try to reach the scores we are all shooting for," he said.  The principal says results of the retesting will be back in late August to determine if VHS will make AYP.
