Summer School Opportunities


A few weeks ago, in order to follow state law and state Board of Education rules, our school district gave the Georgia Milestones End-of-Grade Assessment to all students in grades 8 in language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. Georgia law requires students in grades 3, 5, and 8 to receive a reading determination of Grade Level or Above on the Georgia Milestones End-of-Grade Assessment in the area of reading and to attain an achievement level of “Developing Learner”, “Proficient Learner”, or “Distinguished Learner” on the mathematics section of the Georgia Milestones End-of- Grade Assessment in mathematics for grades 5 and 8 in order to be promoted to the next grade level.

Students who did not score at grade level, as required by state law, are expected to retake the Georgia Milestones End-of-Grade Assessment.

To provide your student with an additional opportunity to demonstrate his/her progress, a retest will be provided during summer school. 

The results of these assessments could be a factor in the promotion or retention of your student for the next school year.

Prior to the retest, the student will be provided accelerated, differentiated, or additional instruction based on his/her performance on the original assessment.  

Summer school will be held at DCJH on June 4th - 6th from 8:30 - 2:30 PM each day.

ELA retakes will take place on Thursday, June 7th from 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM.

Math retakes will take place on Friday, June 8th from 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM.
