GA Milestone Testing Information

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Beginning April 12th, our students in grades 3, 4, and 5 will participate in the Georgia Milestones. Below you will find some pertinent information regarding the administration of the Milestones Assessment.

The Georgia Milestones Assessments will begin on April 12th and end on April 26th. Students will test every other day. Each day, testing will begin promptly at 8:00. It is imperative that all students are here and on time during the entire testing window. Research shows that students test better when they take their assessment with their class, rather than on make-up days.

Below you will find the dates of administration for each subject. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to Ms. Jacqueline Holland, Assistant Principal.
