Division of Special Education Services and Support
Innovative Instruction provides challenging educational programs designed to meet the unique needs of students in a wide variety of settings that result in increased student achievement.

Division of Assessment and Accountability
The Assessment and Accountability Division merges the Department’s Assessment mandate with the Accountability team. Assessment measures student achievement of the state mandated curriculum, identifies students failing to achieve mastery of content, provides teachers with diagnostic information, and assists school systems in identifying strengths and weaknesses in order to establish priorities in planning educational programs. The Accountability team serves to improve communication between all Georgia public schools and other stakeholders regarding the federal and state education accountability initiatives. They also publish the Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) reports for all public school districts and schools as required by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001.
