A Cobb County public school improved enough to move off of Georgia’s lowest-performing list.

Clarkdale Elementary School is among 61 in the state no longer considered “priority” or “focus” schools, the Georgia Department of Education announced Tuesday.

They got on the list with low student scores on state standardized tests and, in some cases, low graduation rates. Clarkdale was labeled a focus school.
