The Cobb County School District’s Library Media
Education Department, in conjunction with Cobb
County Public Libraries, Smyrna Public Library, and
Marietta City Schools, has partnered with Scholastic
to participate in the Scholastic Summer Reading
Challenge again this summer.
Reading throughout the summer helps students
maintain learning gains made in school, and can help
them start the new school year off right.
In the summer of
students logged over 6 MILLION minutes
of reading, and represented 9 of the top 10
schools for number of minutes read in the entire
state of Georgia!
We encourage all students to keep those reading and
learning skills sharp by reading great books all

CCSD Cancels Milestones
Retest in Grades 3, 5, and 8 Due to State Delay
The Cobb County School
District continues to wait on the Georgia Department
of Education to provide student results to the
district and local schools. We strongly
believe that the retest opportunity is important to
both students and schools. In our 2014 retest
administration 40% of students who retested in math
passed on the second attempt, and 34% of the
students who retested in reading passed on the
second attempt. Both our students and teachers
have worked hard over the past three weeks to
continue addressing any learning gaps, and we remain
convinced that students deserve and can benefit from
a second opportunity.
Despite the benefits of retesting, we cannot keep our schools,
children, or families in limbo any longer. Due
to the State’s continued delay in returning student
results, the Cobb County School District has decided
to cancel the originally scheduled plan to retest.
