GA Milestones: The Department of Education has released the Assessment Guides for grades 6, 7, and 8 for the GA Milestones End of Grade tests. Click here to view the guides, testing schedule, and parent information.

 

Experience Georgia Online Testing: This is a practice site for the GA Milestones End of Grade online testing.  The practice tests are very short and are not grade level specific.  The purpose of this site is to familiarize students and teachers with the format of the online testing system, not to provide practice questions that are similar to the actual EOG test.

When a student clicks on a test, the login screen should pre-populate with a generic login and password.  The student just needs to click "Log In" to continue   http://learnoas.ctb.com/GA/

Congratulations Science Fair Participants
We would like to congratulate three of our students on a great job at the Paulding Regional Science Fair held Saturday, January 31. Vasu Patel placed 3rd in his category, Peyton Corey placed 3rd in her category, and Rehan Hashmi placed 1st in his category with the project "Effects of some gasoline products on a soil environment." As a 1st place winner, Rehan qualifies for the state Science Fair at UGA in March!


 

CRPI: When the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) announced the College & Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) scores on December 8, district administrators noticed that specific information for calculating a portion of the score was not included in the released score for each middle school. Therefore, the middle school CCRPI scores showed an inaccurate drop across the district. The issue was immediately addressed on December 9 by the district with the GaDOE Accountability and Assessment Department and is currently being resolved.

Once the new data is incorporated into the recalculation, correct scores for CCSD middle schools will be released and published by the GaDOE at the end of January. Based on internal preliminary calculations by district administrators, the results show that the CCRPI score at every middle school, as well as the overall district score, will increase. The corrected scores will be issued by the State within the next 45 days.

Georgia Parent Survey
It is that time of year again for the Georgia Parent School Climate Survey for the 2014-15 school year.
The faculty and staff would greatly appreciate our parents taking a few minutes to complete the Georgia Parent School Climate Survey. The Georgia Parent Survey contains 24 questions. Parents will be able to complete the survey using their personal computers, smartphones, or iPads. We encourage all parents to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used to calculate the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. Data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online. To take the survey, please click here.
