Parent Information on State and District Assessments in Forsyth County SchoolsThe State Board of Education has requested a waiver from state assessments for the 2020-2021 school year from the United States Department of Education. Georgia Department of Education is still awaiting a ruling on this waiver. Until there is a response to the waiver request, state assessments will continue as planned.System-level and state-mandated assessments measure how well students acquire the skills and knowledge described in the state curriculum. The tests are designed to (1) ensure students are learning at their grade level and (2) provide data to teachers, schools, and the school district to support better instructional decisions.FCS follows guidelines for test security, test preparation, test administration, and test data as provided by the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) and the Professional Standards Commission (PSC). For more information, access FCS Testing webpage. which houses information regarding the PSC Code of Ethics and PSC guidance for assessment (including information about consequences for ethics violations), as well as a link to the GaDOE Testing Assessment site.For questions or concerns regarding test administration or test security, please contact our WFHS Test Coordinator, Dr. Tameka Osabutey-Aguedje @email@example.com

There is no virtual option for any of these assessments. If your child will be taking one of these assessments, he or she will need to come to school to do so. Online learning will be facilitated in the media center with physical distancing for virtual students who do not checkout. Bus transportation will be provided for virtual students on testing days should you choose to take advantage of this option. Buses will run as scheduled at the beginning and end of the school day.
Only students taking EOCs or Advanced Placement Exams will be attending school on testing days - all other students will have an asynchronous Online Learning Day.
