2016 Georgia Milestone test waiver


Today the Georgia State Board of Education approved a waiver submitted by the Georgia Department of Education that relieves the promotion, placement and retention requirement tied to the 2016 Georgia Milestones End of Grade tests in grades 3, 5 and 8. Therefore, there will be no retest administrations this summer for students in 3rd, 5th and 8th grades. This waiver was submitted in order to provide the state with sufficient time to analyze student results and how they were impacted by testing disruptions that occurred in several districts throughout the state. Fortunately, we did not experience these disruptions within our district.

Please note, this waiver does not apply to Georgia Milestones End of Course assessments. 

If you have any questions, please contact the principal or testing coordinator at your child’s school.
