Standardized Testing Survey

Please respond so that they can have enough feedback from the DeKalb County School District to support the suspension of the Georgia Milestones assessment as well as any CCRPI requirements due to the world pandemic and how it has affected us educationally. Please provide feedback, so that they can hear from ALL stakeholders. Thanks in advance!
