The DeKalb County School district has set the state assessment testing dates at each school for the remainder of March and April.

Director of Schools Patrick Cripps and other school administrators are asking parents to make sure their children are in the classrooms each day for the assessments.

“Our state testing provides feedback about students’ academic progress. The results help us to make informed decisions on how to better invest in our schools. All high school students will take the End of Course exams online this year," said Director Cripps. For a preview of how your child will be tested at the high school level please visit this link:
