Monday November 30, 2015, is a Professional Development Day for Westlake High School. There is no school for Westlake High School students the Monday after Thanksgiving. 

Please reinforce to your student that they should not visit other schools.Being on another school’s campus is considered criminal trespassing, and we do not want our students to put themselves in that situation.

​Parents and guardians are invited to provide input via the Facilities Assessment Survey at https://www.snapsurveys.com/wh/s.asp?k=144664703752.  The purpose of the survey is to gather input to update the district’s five-year facility plan.  The district needs your input regarding concerns related to the condition of facilities and the educationally appropriate use of spaces within facilities.  The survey will be available from November 9 through December 11.  This is your opportunity to share your views regarding school system facilities.  Thank you for your participation.​​​​

The School Governance Council (SGC) needs your feedback! Please review the attached Requests for Funding and the School Strategic Plan. Please leave the SGC feedback on these items by CLICKING HERE​. The deadline for all feedback is November 30, 2015. Thank you for helping make Westlake great!

Dear Westlake Family,

Please take this week to read the newsletter, our students and staff have worked very hard to highlight the awesome things going on at Westlake in addition to keeping you informed.   Below you will find a few reminders in addition to those in the newsletter.

1.  Car Rider Pick-up:  Student safety is a priority at Westlake.  All car riders must be picked up no later than 4pm.  If there is a family emergency that prevents you from picking up your student on time, please alert the front office, 470-254-6400.  After 4:15pm all students will be moved to the cafeteria, where parents can pick them up by driving to the rear of the building. Thank you for helping to keep our students safe. 

2. First Georgia Milestones Test Results Released (only at state level):  State scores from the 2014-15 administration of the Georgia Milestones Assessment System (Georgia Milestones in grades 3-8 and Georgia Milestones EOCs in grades 9-12) were released. These preliminary scores reflect the first administration of Georgia’s new comprehensive testing system. This year’s assessment results establish a baseline for the progress we expect student to make over time.  According to the Georgia Department of Education the state showed overall lower results than in past years.  “These results show a lower level of student proficiency than Georgians are used to seeing, but that does not mean Georgia students know less or that teachers are not doing a great job – it means they’ve been asked to clear a higher bar,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. Please review the link below to review the PPT the state shared with school leaders.​

Georgia Milestones 2014-2015 Preliminary Results.pdf

​Georgia Milestones assesses student learning along four levels of performance, compared to three, as was the case for the CRCT/EOC. These designations aim to shift the focus away from just test scores, instead capturing the progression of students’ learning:  

  1. Beginning Learners do not yet demonstrate proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/course of learning, as specified in Georgia’s content standards. The students need substantial academic support to be prepared for the next grade level or course and to be on track for college and career readiness.
  2. Developing Learners demonstrate partial proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/course of learning, as specified by Georgia’s content standards. The students need additional academic support to ensure success in the next grade level or course and to be on track for college and career readiness.
  3. Proficient Learners demonstrate proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/course of learning, as specified in Georgia’s content standards. The students are prepared for the next grade level or course and are on track for college and career readiness.
  4. Distinguished Learners demonstrate advanced proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/course of learning, as specified in Georgia’s content standards. The students are well prepared for the next grade level or course and are well prepared for college and career readiness.
