Governor Perdue Announces 112 High Performance Principals

Governor Sonny Perdue and State Superintendent of Schools Kathy Cox announced today the names of 112 High Performance Principals that have overseen dramatic improvements in student achievement in Georgia public schools.

“These outstanding educators have fostered school environments that are conducive to student achievement,” said Governor Perdue. “As I have often said, it is important to keep score, measure results and then recognize success. These principals have excelled in their efforts, and I am pleased to honor them with the designation of High Performance Principal.”
Governor Perdue introduced the High Performance Principal program in 2006 to recognize excellent school leaders.

“As a teacher for 15 years, I know the huge impact a great principal can have on a school,” said Superintendent Cox. “Year after year, our High Performance Principals have been getting the job done by empowering teachers, engaging parents and inspiring students.”

Three criteria were used to identify possible High Performance Principals:

- Data: The data must show that a principal led improvement at a low-performing school or brought a good school to a higher level
- Longevity: The principal must have been assigned to his or her school for at least three consecutive years
- Recommendation: The principal must be recommended for the designation by his or her school system.
