A note for parents:

Dear Parents,

I look forward to sharing with you at the parent assessment workshop. As the assessment specialist for the Northwest Learning Community, I want to make sure parents are well informed about the exciting shifts that are occurring in instruction and in assessment. Please feel free to bring your electronic devices (I-pad, notebook, laptop, etc.) with you to the assessment workshop. I will show you various places where you can access information relating to GA Milestones as well as answer your assessment questions. At the end of this electronic flyer, I have provided links to information that will assist you in gaining more insight about the Georgia Milestones Assessment System.
