EOCT Test-Out Information
For the 2014-2015 school year, the Georgia Department of Education is allowing students the option to "test out" of any course that has an associated EOC. (EOC courses include 9th Grade Literature, American Literature, Biology, Physical Science, Coordinate Algebra, Analytic Geometry, US History, and Economics.)
Testing out will allow high aptitude students an opportunity to be awarded course credit without taking the class if they score at the "exceeds" level on the assessment. While this is an opportunity for students to move past some high school courses without taking them, careful thought and consideration should be used to weigh the possibility of student success on both the test and future coursework/endeavors.
For more information regarding the test out process, eligibility, fees and the registration form, please click here. Forms are also available in the Guidance Office. Registration forms and the registration fee of $50 (payable to Cambridge High School) are due August 29, 2014 to the Guidance Office.
Affidavit of Residency
Each year students shall submit appropriate proof of residency (notarized Affidavit of Residency and two proofs of residency) upon initial enrollment in Fulton County Schools, upon entry to 9th grades, and at the start of each school year.
