This spring, all 3rd through 8th grade students will be assessed with the Georgia Milestones End-of-Grade assessment mandated by the state. According to Georgia law, the student will be retained in their current grade level based on the following:
· If a 3rd grade student scores below level in the reading domain of the ELA test; or
· If a 5th or 8th grade student scores below level in the reading domain of the ELA test and/or at the beginning learner level on the math test.
Per FCS Board policy, in grades where state-adopted assessments are administered, schools must consider the state assessment as part of the totality of evidence when considering placement or retention of students. The school principal, or designee, and a committee consisting of teacher(s) and parents, will meet to review all assessment data and other relevant information, to make a final decision whether to place the student in the next grade level or to retain the student. This decision will be based on the totality of evidence.
