Georgia Milestones Assessment System
What is it?
The Georgia Milestones Assessment System (Georgia Milestones) is a comprehensive summative assessment program spanning
3rd grade through high school.
Georgia Milestones measures how well students have learned the knowledge and skills outlined in the state-adopted content standards in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.
Students in grades 3 through 8 will take an end-of-grade assessment in each content area.

School Governance Council Elections
for School Year 2015-2016
High Point Elementary School will be electing new representatives to serve on the School Governance Council. There is one parent/guardian position and one teacher position open for election this spring. Our School Governance Council has a leadership role in the governance of the school. The Council works with the principal on the long-term vision and strategy for the school. They are responsible for approving the school's strategic plan and budget recommendations, as well as design innovative solutions to increase academic achievement and meet the unique needs of our school community. This past year, our Council worked diligently to develop a strategic plan with our students needs in mind. We have had our Request for Flexibility (RFF) approved to provide for professional development for the staff in the areas of project based learning (PBL,) International Baccalaureate (IB,) rigor and relevance. We have also requested and received over $178,000 through the Seed Fund process. This money will be used to facilitate the launch of the candidacy phase of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, which includes introducing a second language to the students of High Point.
Elections for the parent/guardian and teacher position on the School Governance Council will be held May 5th – 7th. Candidates interested in running for an elected position on the Council must complete a candidate declaration form and submit to the district office by April 28th!
Candidate forms may be submitted electronically (click appropriate link below, complete form and click "submit") or by mail (get a copy of the form from the school's front office and follow mailing instructions on the back of the form). For additional information on our School Governance Councils and elections, view our School Governance Council webpage http://www.fultonschools.org/en/about/charter/Pages/electionresources.aspx or read the School Governance Council Candidate Guide below.
