Gov. Brian Kemp joined with State education leaders Thursday to make several announcements regarding testing and teacher certifications, including the removal of the edTPA assessment as a requirement for the certification of educators in Georgia and the removal of the second of two required ethics assessments. Officials said the removal of these two assessments cuts the certification cost for Georgia teachers by nearly half, easing barriers for many in the midst of the fight with COVID-19.
Kemp also joined State School Superintendent Richard Woods in announcing that Georgia will submit a waiver to the U.S. Department of Education for the suspension of the 2020-21 Georgia Milestones assessment and CCRPI school and district rating.
