Three elementary schools in Douglas County have won 2017 Single Statewide Accountability System (SSAS) awards for Greatest Gains. A total of 139 Georgia public schools in 50 districts were recognized for Greatest Gains by Governor Nathan Deal on November 17, 2017.

Annette Winn, Chapel Hill, and Holly Springs Elementary schools were once again recognized as the SSAS award recipients for Greatest Gains in student achievement. The SSAS awards originated in 2007. Greatest Gains schools may be awarded one of the following levels: Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze.

The DCSS Greatest Gains schools and levels are:

·         Holly Springs Elementary – Gold

·         Annette Winn Elementary – Silver

·         Chapel Hill Elementary – Silver

“The consistent hard work of the school leadership, teachers, students and parents continues to show positive results for these schools,” said Superintendent Trent North. “As a school system, we will work hard to ensure that more of our schools receive these honors in the future.”

Greatest Gains schools exhibit high growth in student achievement by earning a three-year average CCRPI Progress Score in at least the 93rd percentile in the state. Additionally, schools must remain in the same CCRPI Single Score range over the last three years.
