The 2017 Governor’s Shape Honor Roll recognized 11 elementary schools in the Cobb County School District (CCSD) for the staff’s dedication to creating a healthy school environment and a culture of wellness for staff, students, and community.
Schools received awards based on four tiers of criteria: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Eight Cobb Schools received the Platinum Award. The remaining Cobb schools earned Gold, Silver, and Bronze honors.
Georgia’s K-12 public schools were invited to submit an application to be recognized by the Governor’s Office, the Georgia Department of Education, and the Georgia Department of Public Health for their exceptional participation in the annual fitness assessment data collection process and for their commitment to efforts that improve student wellness.
In addition to the individual schools earning spots on the 2017 Shape Honor Roll, CCSD also received an All Star Award as recognition of the District’s leadership, advocacy, and multiple partnerships with other organizations working for a healthy youth environment.
