Forsyth County Schools utilizes an assessment program comprised of state, district, and classroom assessments. Results of assessments are utilized to identify students' level of content mastery, to guide teachers with instructional planning, and to support the district in identifying strengths and weaknesses in order to improve instructional effectiveness.
FCS follows guidelines for test security, test preparation, test administration, and test data as provided by the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE), the Professional Standards Commission (PSC), and the Forsyth County Board of Education. FCS provides many measures of test security, which includes providing extensive training for school-level testing coordinators, limiting access to test materials, and system-level administrative oversight on test days.
Student Testing Calendars
The 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.
The middle school and high school testing calendars are pending due to the passing of Senate Bill 367 and its impact on Georgia Milestones End of Course testing. Once further guidance is provided by the Georgia Department of Education, our middle school and high school testing calendars will be finalized.
