Character Word of the Month
In Georgia, 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.
Students using the library next year at Cedar Ridge Elementary will have a who guide trained at the Library of Congress to support them. Media Specialist Tommye Mathis has been accepted to the 2018 Library of Congress Summer Institute. Each year, the Library of Congress provides the opportunity for selected K–12 educators to attend one of its Summer Teacher Institutes in Washington, D.C.
