Parent Surveys
GA Milestones Testing Information
  • A website, called Experience Online Testing Georgia, has been established to provide an opportunity for students to become familiar with the online testing platform.  The website can be found at the link that follows: This practice site does not require a log-in and is available 7 days a week.  Importantly, this practice site is not designed as a “practice test” to measure a student’s knowledge of course content and scores will not be generated.  Again, it is intended to allow students to familiarize themselves with the online platform prior to testing. 
  • We will also be setting up practice sessions during the school day to provide students a similar opportunity to acquaint themselves with the online testing system.
Parents of Early Learners Can Receive Literacy Tips Via Text

Thanks to a collaboration between the Georgia Department of Education and Stanford University, Georgia parents of pre-kindergarteners and kindergarteners have access to a FREE texting program to help prepare 3-, 4- and 5-year-olds for kindergarten.

Ready4K GA provides tips, facts, resources, and regular reminders about how parents can excel in their role as their child’s first and most important teacher by maximizing existing family routines in fun and easy ways. Research shows that these types of texts increase parent involvement at home and school while leading to significant child learning gains.
