Twiggs County Works to Boost Graduation Rate

School is well under way, and many schools are already focused on graduation.

Twiggs County Principal Jamie Paulk recently took over at Twiggs county High School.

Twiggs saw one of the lowest gradation rates in their district.

With the assistance of a $2.6 million school improvement grant spread over three years, the high school now has new teachers, a graduation coach, and a literacy coach, as well as extended class time to give the students more one-on-one time.

Paulk says he hopes the grant will make a huge difference in his district.

"If we educate them, they will graduate. We have a relationship with them, and if we have rigor with that relationship, we'll make it relevant, and then each student will learn and graduate, and my goal is to see these students achieve," Paulk said.

Paulk became principal in July of this year. The school currently has 255 students.
