Oconee County Schools Students Scored Lower On State Milestones Tests Compared With Pre-Pandemic Testing

***Rankings Did Not Change As Dramatically***

Students in Oconee County Schools scored lower on 17 of the 25 Georgia Milestones Assessment System measures released last month than they did in July of 2019 when the state last released results from the standardized tests.

Across the state, test scores were lower in 2021 than they were in 2019, likely reflecting differences in the education experiences of students in the last academic year due to the COVID-19 pandemic as well as differences in testing procedures.
