2018-2019 Grade Reconfiguration
While there are instances of an immediate connection, relationships typically take time to form and even more time to strengthen. It is those strong bonds that often lead to higher student achievement. We believe our current grade configuration simply does not allow enough time for bonds to be formed like we want them to. Because of that, we are undertaking the monumental task of realigning our schools.
Currently, Tift County students will attend seven schools if they attend Pre-Kindergarten through twelfth grade. Our new plan will cut that number to three. This will allow for time for stronger relationships to be formed between students, staff and parents.
