Each year, a Teacher of the Year and an Employee of the Year are chosen for the Telfair County School System. The process begins when principals nominate candidates from their schools. Next, all nominees complete candidate application forms and submit them to the curriculum director. Finally, applications are reviewed by a panel of retired educators and candidates are ranked based on their responses to a series of questions on the application. The panel then selects a teacher and an employee to represent each school, and the Teacher of the Year and Employee of the Year for the system are chosen from the school representatives.

The Georgia Department of Education today released its list of Reward Schools, designated as part of the state’s waiver from the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). Each Reward School is a Title I school and is recognized as either a Highest-Performing School, the five percent of the state’s Title I schools with the highest absolute performance over three years for the “all students” group on the statewide assessments, or a Highest-Progress School, the 10 percent of the state’s Title I schools making the most progress in improving the performance of the “all students” group over three years on the statewide assessments. We are honored to announce that both Telfair County High School and Telfair County Elementary School have been named as a Highest-Progress School. Congratulations to our administration, faculty and students on being, “One Word…Excellence.”
The College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) is used to track school accountability. It replaces Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), which was used under the No Child Left Behind Act.
The CCRPI will help parents and the public better understand how schools are performing in a more comprehensive manner than the pass/fail system previously in place under AYP. The CCRPI measures on a scale of 1-100.
The average score for Georgia’s high schools is 72. Telfair County High School scored an 81. TCHS had the highest CCRPI score of the high schools in the Heart of Georgia RESA, and it also was the second highest high school score in all of Middle Georgia.
