Report: 82.5 percent of Gwinnett schools made AYP

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -- Four Gwinnett County schools that did not initially make AYP for the 2010-2011 school year have now achieved it after appeals, graduation and summer retest scores, according to a report released this week.

Those four schools are:

* Ferguson Elementary, Duluth
* Creekland Middle, Lawrenceville
* McConnell Middle, Loganville
* Duluth High

Their achievements bumped up Gwinnett County's AYP standing -- 82.5 percent of its schools met their goals.

Of the 22 schools that did not make AYP in 2010-2011, only four face consequences for not meeting their goals for two or more consecutive years:

* Hopkins Elementary, Lilburn
* Sweetwater Middle, Lawrenceville
* Berkmar High, Lilburn
* Phoenix High, Lawrenceville

All four schools now offer public school choice, meaning that families have the option of transferring to other Gwinnett schools that met their AYP goals. The two high schools also offer supplemental services for those students who choose to stay.

The remaining 18 schools that did not achieve AYP in 2010-2011 are:

* Anderson-Livsey Elementary, Snellville
* Cooper Elementary, Loganville
* Peachtree Elementary, Norcross
* Duluth Middle
* Five Forks Middle, Lawrenceville
* Grace Snell Middle, Loganville
* Lilburn Middle
* Pinckneyville Middle, Norcross
* Radloff Middle, Duluth
* Summerour Middle, Norcross
* GIVE Center East, Lawrenceville
* Central Gwinnett High, Lawrenceville
* Dacula High
* Lanier High, Sugar Hill
* Meadowcreek High, Norcross
* Norcross High
* Parkview High, Lilburn
* South Gwinnett High, Snellville
