According to Georgia law, End of Grade (EOG) assessments are administered to students in grades three through eight, and End of Course (EOC) assessments are administered to students enrolled in specific high school courses.  

 This year’s scores set a new baseline for all schools and school districts in the state of Georgia. The Jefferson City School System will continue to utilize the assessment results along with other performance data to determine the most effective ways to address the academic needs of our students.
