BCSD Announces GA Milestones Scores for 2022-2023




The Georgia Department of Education has released the 2022-2023 Georgia Milestones Scores for the Baldwin County School District and the state. While the scores have not yet reached pre-pandemic levels, Baldwin students showed improvement on the 2022-2023 Georgia Milestones assessments. Scores increased or held steady on 12 of 21 End of Grade (EOG) and End of Course (EOC) assessments, compared to the 2021-2022 school year.


Within Baldwin County Schools, the largest increases in the percentage of students scoring Proficient & Above were recorded in third-grade ELA (increased 5 percentage points), third-grade math (increased 10 percentage points), fourth-grade Math (increased 8 percentage points), sixth-grade ELA (increased 7 percentage points), and Biology (increased 11 percentage points).


The 2022-2023 Georgia Milestones scores also showed positive indicators in the area of literacy. The percentage of third grade, fourth grade, sixth grade, and eighth grade students reading on grade level increased by at least five percentage points. Our local assessment system indicates that our literacy initiative continues to show promise and that more students are developing their reading skills than ever before. In addition, we are investing in our educators by providing them with the opportunity to complete training in LETRS (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling), Orton-Gillingham and/or the Wilson Reading Programs, which will help teachers provide instruction aligned to the Science of Reading and structured literacy. All BCSD teachers will be required to complete literacy training by 2025.


“The academic growth of students is the most critical factor in achieving proficiency for all students. We are confident that our continued focus on literacy, implementation of targeted instructional strategies and rigorous curriculum, and efforts toward closing the learning gap that was created by the pandemic will lead to higher student achievement,” said Superintendent Dr. Noris Price. “We are proud of our progress, however, there is still a lot of work ahead of us to ensure that all of our students achieve at high levels and are prepared to succeed in life.”

About Georgia Milestones

Students take Georgia Milestones End of Grade (EOG) tests in grades three through eight, and Georgia Milestones End of Course (EOC) tests in identified high school courses. The Georgia Milestones Assessment System meets the federal requirement that states test students in math and ELA in grades 3-8 and once in high school, and in science once per grade band (3-5, 6-9, 10-12).

Georgia Milestones assesses student learning along four levels of achievement:

Beginning Learners do not yet demonstrate proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/course of learning, as specified in Georgia's content standards. The students need substantial academic support to be prepared for the next grade level or course and to be on track for college and career readiness.

Developing Learners demonstrate partial proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/course of learning, as specified by Georgia's content standards. The students need additional academic support to ensure success in the next grade level or course and to be on track for college and career readiness.

Proficient Learners demonstrate proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/course of learning, as specified in Georgia's content standards. The students are prepared for the next grade level or course and are on track for college and career readiness.

Distinguished Learners demonstrate advanced proficiency in the knowledge and skills necessary at this grade level/course of learning, as specified in Georgia's content standards. The students are well prepared for the next grade level or course and are well prepared for college and career readiness.
