GA Milestones May 2017 Scores Went Home 9/25
All current 7th and 8th grade students who took the GA Milestones End-of-Grade Assessment at Columbia Middle School in May 2017 received their scores September 25. If they did not test at Columbia Middle School, their scores are still at the school where they tested. Current 6th grade students did not receive their scores today because we are waiting to receive them from their previous elementary schools. We will give them to our 6th grade students as soon as we receive them.
