DeKalb PATH Academy Named 'Distinguished School'

Brookhaven-based charter school made AYP three years consecutively.

 

DeKalb PATH Academy is one of 11 Georgia charter schools that serve economically disadvantaged students to earn the designation of "Title 1 Distinguished Schools", according to written statement issued by the Georgia Charter Schools Association.

DeKalb PATH Academy is among a total of 824 Georgia public schools to earn the designation based on its success in achieving Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for at least three consecutive years. AYP is a federal measure of academic achievement, including those with disabilities and language challenges. 

According to GCSA, Title 1 schools have significant populations of students who are economically disadvantaged and receive federal funding to assist with the education of their students.
