Please click the link above to view the Middle School Testing Calendar. 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.
Records for students who were enrolled in a special education program in a Whitfield County school who were born before January 1, 1997 and were 22 years of age as of July 1, 2019 are no longer needed for educational purposes. The Special Education Department announces its intention to destroy these records after January 1, 2020. Click the link above to learn more.
The Georgia Department of Education is seeking comment on a waiver request for the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act, which will be submitted to the US Department of Education. More information and a survey with an opportunity for comments is available at the link above until November 29.
Dual Enrollment provides opportunities for high school students to take free college courses and earn credit at both the high school and post-secondary institution.
