Georgia Alternate Assessment Parent Workshop set for December 3

The Exceptional Children’s Services Department of the Fayette County Public School System will host a workshop on the Georgia Alternate Assessment on December 3 in the media center at Rivers Elementary beginning at 8:30 a.m.

Parents are encouraged to bring their child’s report to reference during the discussion. Topics will include the creation of the Georgia Alternate Assessment (GAA) and how its portfolio is assessed; eligibility for the GAA; adaptive curriculum in general; and elements of the Georgia Performance Standards assessed in the portfolio.

Parents will also see examples of activities aligned to grade level standards and will learn ways to talk to their child’s teacher regarding which standards their child is working on and how they can help their child at home.

Exceptional Children’s Services staff members Kim Stapleton, adaptive curriculum coordinator; Cathy Skinner-Robertson, adaptive curriculum consultant; and Linda Williams, REACH and transition consultant, will facilitate the discussion.

Light refreshments will be served and a door prize drawing will be held. The workshop is free and open to the public; however, reservations are required for those planning to attend.
December 2 is the deadline to reserve a seat by contacting Allison Stevenson, parent mentor, at or call 770-460-3911, ext 239.
