Eastbrook Middle School will begin ACCESS testing on January 22-February 14nd. ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 is an English language proficiency assessment for Grades K–12. The test is administered every year to help school districts monitor the English language development of students identified as English language learners. Make sure your child gets an ample, normal amount of sleep the night before the test. Encourage your child to eat a nutritious and filling breakfast. Make sure he/she is on time (if not early) on the day of testing.

We had 4 EMS and 4 VPM teams working together this year from Space Camp to FLL EdCamps, Practice Tournaments and more. Of the 8 teams represented by RAIDER NATION we will be sending 6 to the STATE tournament this year. This is such a great thing for our schools and kids. Our tournament only sends 8 teams on to the next level. So we are really proud to have so many teams representing RAIDER NATION. Probably one of the coolest moments this Saturday was the spontaneous RAIDER NATION cheering that happened as teams from both VPM and EMS ran rounds on the tables and students wanted to support both teams. It was heartwarming.

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.
In compliance with the Georgia Records Act, the Whitfield County School District’s records retention schedule, and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) regulations on destruction of data collected, maintained or used in the provision of a free and appropriate public education of students with disabilities in the District’s schools, the Special Education Department announces its intention to destroy special education records as indicated below after the following date: April 1, 2019.
As we continue to prepare for the 2019 Georgia Milestones, the GaDOE has developed Technology-Enhanced (TE) Item Examples for our students in grades 3-12. To get our students ready for this type of assessment, the GaDOE has created a video, PowerPoint with script for teachers to review the TE items, and Score Descriptions for teachers to use with students. For links to the video, PowerPoint, and a student practice test, click the headline above.
