The presentation will provide an overview of Georgia’s approach to addressing low-performing schools. This effort was launched with the hiring of a Chief Turnaround Officer. This position was created to develop and effectively execute an evidence-based model to implement the First Priority Act (HB 338). The strategy is designed to not only impact a set of schools, but also to impact the remaining turnaround-eligible schools and their districts. Additionally, as envisioned in HB 338, this comprehensive model is an opportunity to inform the state’s overarching approach to addressing low-performing schools.
