PRESS RELEASE

 

 

On Thursday, May 5, 2016, the State Board of Education (SBOE) approved the request to waive SBOE Rule 160-4-2-.11 PROMOTION, PLACEMENT, AND RETENTION, section (3) (c), for the 2015-2016 school year for students in grades 3, 5, and 8, due to school districts and schools reported technology-related interruptions of the online testing of the Georgia Milestone End of Grade Assessments. Since the results of these assessments will not be used as a criteria for promotion of students in grades 3, 5 and 8, the Columbia County School District will not administer the re-test of the Georgia Milestone End of Grade Assessment for these grades. If you have any questions, please contact your school.
