Milestones results in for Bulloch schools
But first-time test scores wont affect grade promotion

Results released Monday from the 2014-15 Georgia Milestones tests show that the majority of Bulloch County students, like the majority of their peers across the state, did not achieve state learning standards in English, math, science and social studies as measured by the new tests. However, as state and local education officials have been reminding parents, the last school year's results will not count for promotion from grade to grade. In the future, Georgia Milestones, like the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests that it replaced, will be a gateway test students need to pass for promotion from the third, fifth and eighth grades.
