This record is from the archival collection of the
Elbert County Superintendent of Schools and records those students
who achieved an eighth grade promotion from 1918 - 1930. The record
usually shows the students' name, their nearest town address, their
overall grade average, their achievement grades in arithmetic, reading,
penmanship, spelling, grammar, history, civics, agriculture, geography
and physiology. In addition, the name of their eighth grade teacher,
name of the school (many of which were one-room schools) and the
school district number are recorded.
