Dr. John Wight, Director of Federal Programs with the Georgia Department of Education, has requested that Lowndes County Schools serve on a panel at the annual GCEL Conference in Savannah, Georgia, in February of 2018.  

Georgia Compensatory Educational Leaders (GCEL) Incorporated was initiated and organized by concerned educators who envisioned the compensatory programs of Title I, Special Education, Remedial Education, Early Intervention (formerly SIA), Migrant Education, English to Speakers of Other Languages, and the Neglected and Delinquent Program as vital instructional components to the total education process. 

Dr. Wight’s panel will consist of educators from school districts that have demonstrated student success during the past year and have been recognized by the Title I Reward Schools Program that recognizes and honors two categories of Reward Schools:  Highest-Performing Reward Schools and High-Progress Reward Schools. At the conference, representatives from Lowndes County Schools will serve on the panel to discuss and share the best instructional practices that have helped our students to grow academically and to excel.

In 2017, Clyattville Elementary School was recognized as a High-Progress Reward School while Pine Grove Elementary School and Lake Park Elementary School were recognized as Highest-Performing Reward Schools.  We are proud for Mr. Tenry Berry, Mrs. Mickie Jones, and Mrs. Suzanne Tanner, Principals of Clyattville, Pine Grove, and Lake Park Elementary Schools, respectively, and the tremendous dedication and work all of the teachers and staff at these schools for these recognitions.
