A long-underperforming Savannah high school appears to be making good on its federal turnaround money. Beach High School hasn't met academic standards for Adequate Yearly Progress since the No Child Left Behind Law was passed nine years ago. Based on test results, though, officials say, they believe Beach will make AYP for the first time ever.
Big changes are in store for one of Savannah's worst public schools. The new principal at Groves High School on Monday was scheduled to tell parents about a plan to turn around one of three Savannah schools where officials fired half the teachers in a bid to boost performance. Groves had been on No Child Left Behind's Needs Improvement list for five years.
