The Georgia Department of Education released state Milestones test results last week, which showed many gains for the Dawson County School system, according to Tracey Compton, director of school improvement and accountability for Dawson County. Compton said that Dawson County scores in English Language Arts increased in elementary grades, scores in all content areas for middle grades were above state average and high school students scored above state average in all end of course assessments. During the Georgia Milestones Assessment System exams, students in grades three through eight are tested using an end of grade test, while high school students are administered end of course tests at the end of the winter and spring semesters.
