Important Information Regarding Revised Promotion/Retention Policy for 3rd/5th/8th Grade Students

DEAR SWLE PARENT/GUARDIAN,

The Laurens County Board of Education has revised its Promotion/Retention Policy for 3rd, 5th, and 8th grade students.  While Georgia Law requires all students to be tested in grades 3-8 on the Milestones, that one test will no longer determine if a child is retained.  HOWEVER, the child's performance on the test continues to be important as it is one of several factors considered together to determine if a child is ready to move to the next grade level.  

If you have questions, please feel free to contact the school as always.
