End of Grade Assessment Testing April 16th - May 1st
At http://experience-ga.ctb.com/ parents, students and educators have the opportunity to practice and let students see firsthand what testing online is like. The items on the demonstration tests are general and are organized into three grade bands: Grades 3 – 5, Grades 6 – 8, and High School in the content areas of English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. The items do not necessarily represent the specific grade-level content that students learn daily in their classrooms, but do provide an opportunity for students to acclimate themselves with the testing platform and question structure. The primary purpose is to let students experience, firsthand, the functionality of the online testing platform. The sample tests are not graded, so have fun!
New this year: Fulton County Schools Implement Student Learning Objectives
As mandated by the state of Georgia, this year Fulton County Schools will begin implementing SLOs – Student Learning Objectives. You may have heard the term by now, but what are they and how do they impact your student?
SLOs are district-wide measurable, long-term academic SMART goals set to determine student growth. In simplest terms, SLOs are about student growth – measuring how and what a student learns in order to inform instruction and personalize learning. Students will take a pre-assessment at the beginning of the course to determine what they already know. Teachers will then use the results to plan instruction for the remainder of the course. The score students earn on the pre-assessments won't count for or against them or be factored into their overall grade in the course, but it will help their teachers plan instruction for the rest of the course in order to improve the level of learning to its highest possibility.
To find out more about SLOs and how they're being implemented in Fulton County Schools, read the SLO_QA.PDF
Through Fulton County Schools’ SPLOST funds, Summit Hill should be receiving a playground makeover during the 2014 – 2015 school year!! We are working with the county to save all the equipment purchased by our Foundation several years ago. Watch for these changes after September!

CHANGES IN TRANSPORTATION
If your child is changing dismissal routines in any way, such as taking a different bus home or riding on his/her regular bus but switching stops, a note must be sent to your child's teacher upon arrival. Changes in bus routines are approved for child care purposes only, not play dates. Changes in bus stops or bus numbers must be approved in advance by both transportation and school administration.
If your child is riding home at carpool with someone other than your identified guardian or release adults, you must send a note to your child's teacher upon arrival. We need your signature and approval on any additional names of adults to whom your child can be released. The name of the person taking the child will be checked against the Emergency Contact List and I.D. may be requested.
For best results, any changes in dismissal should be in the teacher's hands by 8:00 a.m. Changes after 2:05 pm are difficult to guarantee success.
When emergencies arise and a change in dismissal is needed, parents must contact the front office staff by phone as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping your children safe!
