The winning school will be announced at the Georgia
Charter Schools Association’s First-Ever Charter Schools
Leadership Conference, Friday, Jan. 31 at Lake Oconee Academy.
The winner receives a $50,000 grant from The Coca-Cola Foundation. The award was established to honor excellence in education throughout the public charter sector in Georgia. This is the third year of this partnership initiative between The Coca-Cola Foundation and the Georgia Charter Schools Association.
Last year’s Coca-Cola Foundation winner was Drew Charter
School. The primary criteria for the winner included being in
existence for at least five years and demonstrating academic excellence as
measured by standardized achievement tests and operational sustainability and
sound fiscal practices.
