SAVANNAH, GA (WSAV) – After eleven years in the Savannah-Chatham County Schools, Dr. Thomas B. Lockamy, Jr. is resigning. His retirement comes as the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System surpasses the graduation rate in Georgia for the second year in a row and now equals the latest promoted national numbers.

Dropout rates have also declined, surpassing state and national numbers according to a release from SCCPSS Public Information Manager.

According to a release from the Public Information Officer, Dr. Lockamy has spent over 50 years in the education field and created an inclusive model of school-community interaction through his Passport to Excellence transformation model.

His vision for a world class school system is supported by a plan he initiated to increase the academic outcome for all students while providing a wide range of educational options for families.
