Earning Credit through Demonstrated Competency (Testing Out)

The Georgia Board of Education recently approved a rule allowing eligible students to earn high school credit by “testing out”. During the 2013-14 school year, Griffin Spalding County Schools awarded units of high school credit to students in two ways, as required by State Board of Education Rule 160-5-1-.15.

1.    A student may earn course credit by earning a final course grade of 70 or higher.

2 . Prior to enrolling in a course with an associated Georgia Milestones End of Course (EOC), a student may earn course credit by taking the EOCT and achieving the “Exceeds Expectations” level (a scale score of 450 or above) on the exam. This method of earning course credit is referred to as “testing out.”

If you are interested, please read the following document for further information on how testing out works and the requirements needed.

Transportation Survey for 2014 -2015

In order ensure that every student has accurate bus information at the beginning of the 2014 -2015 school year, the district is requiring students to formally request transportation services prior to riding a GSCS school bus. This information is being gathered now for the upcoming school term. You may change your riding status at any time during the school year according to your individual need. This is your opportunity to secure bus service now for the first day of school and avoid any delays in service.

If your student did not fill out a form or speak with transportation at lunch May 29th, please fill out the following form about each student in your household.

  Please fill out this form.
