CRCT and EOCT Test Preparation Sessions
We will be offering CRCT and EOCT test preparation sessions March 3-April 18 (no classes will be held during Spring Break, April 7-12,). We are extremely excited about the opportunity to support our kids as they prepare for state and district assessments. The test preparation sessions are open to all students. An outline of the concepts that will be offered will be available at the start of each week and will be shared through the school's website. (Student Menu - CRCT Prep link) The test preparation schedule was sent home Friday, February 28th, in a letter with an attached permission slip. Please sign the permission slip and return it to the front office if you are interested in having your child participate in the test preparation sessions. No child will be able to participate without a signed permission slip. Any questions please contact the school at 770-740-7030.

Plan for Missed Instructional Days
At its Thursday, February 20 meeting, the Fulton County School Board approved a plan for making up the instructional time missed due to recent inclement weather days.
March 14 is now an instructional day for students instead of a teacher workday; schools will be in session as usual.
We are aware that parents have expressed concern regarding testing. The makeup plan therefore includes five additional days for CRCT preparation. The CRCT testing window for elementary and middle school students now begins April 22. Additionally, district leaders are exploring ways for schools to provide students with additional academic support after school, and digital resources aligned to the curriculum are also being developed for students. Updates will be provided to parents as plans are finalized.
Spring break remains unchanged and is scheduled for April 7-11. High school graduation dates are not impacted and the last day of school will be May 23.
Thank you for your partnership as we work together to support our students.
EOCT Information for Parents
Beginning this school year, the Georgia Department of Education is
allowing students the option to “test out” of a high school course. This allows
high aptitude students an opportunity to earn course credit without taking the
class. To test out, students can take an End-of-Course Test (before enrolling in and
taking the course) and if they score at the “exceeds” level on the assessment,
they will be awarded credit for that course. Further information, form.
