The Georgia Milestones Assessment measures how well students have learned the knowledge and skills outlined in the state-adopted content standards in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Students in grades 3 through 8 will take End-of-Grade (EOG) assessments in each content area. Decatur County students will participate in the Georgia Milestones between April 12th-24th. During this week we ask that your child attend school each day, arrive on time (before 8:00am), and get a good night's sleep. It is very important that your student is at school each day, rested, and ready to do their best on the EOG. Please schedule all doctor and dental appointments around the test dates. Students will be testing during the morning.

For further information or questions, you may contact your child's school adminstration or Chip Davis, Director of System Assessement at 229-240-2039.
