  • Aligning Literacy State Policies and Practices: The State Board of Education voted at the July SBOE to approve the list of universal screeners in compliance with the Georgia Early Literacy Act. Additionally, the board initiated an amendment to SBOE Rule 160-3-1-.07 Testing Programs – Student Assessment to adopt the mathematics and ELA courses that will be assessed with the Georgia Milestones EOCs and GAA 2.0 in alignment with Georgia’s new mathematics and ELA standards, adopt dyslexia and universal reading screenin​g requirements as specified in state law, and provide exemption from the GKIDS ELA portion for kindergarten students being administered dyslexia and universal reading screeners. The Aligning Literacy State Policies and Practices has been updated to reflect these actions. Additional Information: Aligning Literacy State Policies and Practices – Updated Guidance
