Georgia Milestones

We have received 8th grade scores. Teachers have started data analysis and preparation for retesting. Other grade levels will be notified when their scores are ready.

The following percentages represent our preliminary level 2s, 3s, and 4s:

ELA 88%

MA 69% (no honors students took 8th grade EOG)

SC 56%

This is tremendous growth from last year. When the full reports are in we will do a more accurate data analysis.

Summative Conferences

Be prepared to discuss your student intervention document and your professional growth plan. Bring any supporting documents that you wish to discuss. You will have your summative conference with the administrator who completed your formative.
