Additional information from the IRSD:

“We are overjoyed at having two of our schools honored as State Recognition Schools,” said IRSD Superintendent Jay Owens. “As superintendent, it’s always gratifying to have your schools recognized as being among the best in the state. I want to commend Phillip C. Showell Principal Christy Kerr and North Georgetown Principal Sarah Green and their staffs for their tireless dedication to our students. Honors such as these are not possible without a tremendous amount of hard work and commitment from a gifted group of educators.”
