Everyone’s connected to a school in some way. Maybe you work there, or have family enrolled in one, or you have a great school in your community. No matter the connection, schools and the education they provide are important, and anything that can help stretch a school’s budget allows them to provide the best education possible. Simply make a purchase of qualifying school supplies, provide your school's ID at checkout (in store and online) and your designated school will receive 5% back in credits for FREE supplies! It's a small act that can make a huge difference.

The purposes of the Georgia Student Assessment Program are to: measure student achievement of the state mandated curriculum, identify students failing to achieve mastery of content, provide teachers with diagnostic information, and assist school systems in identifying strengths and weaknesses in order to establish priorities in planning educational programs.
The Governor’s Office of Student Achievement (GOSA) prepares Georgia’s State, Local, and School Annual Report Cards. The Annual Report Cards contain test results as well as other information relevant to school performance toward the goals of student achievement and school completion. The Report Card is in compliance with both state and federal laws with respect to reporting requirements. GOSA partners with the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) to produce the K-12 Public Schools Reports since much of the data comes from GaDOE.
