ExPreSS Programs

The purpose of the two ExPreSS (Exam Preparation for Science and Social Studies) programs, online or face-to-face, is to address statewide Science and Social Studies performance on the Georgia High School Graduation Tests (GHSGT).  The two ExPreSS Programs support the following State Board of Education Strategic Plan Goals:

   Goal 1: Increase high school graduation rate, decrease high school dropout rate, and increase post-secondary enrollment rate.
   Goal 3: Improve workforce readiness skills.
   Goal 5: Improve the SAT, ACT, and achievement scores of Georgia students.
 

Online ExPreSS

Beginning February 1, 2010, a free Online ExPreSS Tutorial Program will be offered by the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) for high school students and certificate of attendance recipients who were unsuccessful on or who have not yet taken the Science and/or Social Studies Georgia High School Graduation Tests (GHSGT).  The Online ExPreSS modules are self-paced and are based on the instructional plans created for the summer ExPreSS Program.
