State School Superintendent Woods sends commendation letters to 19 local teachers

Georgia Department of Education School Superintendent Richard Woods sent letters to 19 local school teachers commending them for taking advantage of the Georgia Statewide Longitudinal Data System to help their students.

Woods also sent a letter to Elbert County School Superintendent Chuck Bell, who in turn told the Elbert County Board of Education Monday night that the teachers needed to be recognized for their efforts in utilizing the state’s data.

The local teachers “viewed over 500 pages of student data and resources within the Georgia Statewide Longitudinal Data System (SLDS) over the course of the 2014-2015 school year,” Woods wrote to Bell. “These teachers are receiving a commendation letter from the Georgia Department of Education for this use of the Georgia SLDS.”

Teachers from the middle school receiving the letter were Cherokee Bell, Kimberly Bowen and Denise Huff.

Teachers from the Paul J. Blackwell Learning Center receiving the letter were Jodi Mewborne and Whitney Pierce.

Teachers from the high school receiving the letter were Lisa Haynes, Cherish Ingram and Kachina Harper.

Teachers from the primary school receiving the letter were Kelly Johnson, Katherine Kurtz, Calandra Newman, Yvette Sanders, Tammy Smith and Scott Eubanks.

Teachers from the elementary school receiving the state superintendent’s commendation letter were Mindy Black, Shanda Rorick, Joy Clark, Tracy Bennett and Mark Fuller.
