Briarlake is a National PTA School of Excellence!!!!
We did it! Briarlake has just been named a 2016-18 National PTA School of Excellence! National PTA recognized 173 schools and PTAs representing 31 states and one Department of Defense school in Germany. Out of these 173 schools, there are 14 schools from Georgia and one from DeKalb County...our own Briarlake Elementary!
 
MAP (Measures of Academic Progress)
The DeKalb County School District (DCSD) has adopted a new Universal Screener, MAP (Measures of Academic Progress). It is a computer-based tool that will be used to assist in identifying areas of growth based upon students' individual needs. In an effort to improve teaching and learning, MAP allows teachers and students the opportunity to set goals and track individual student growth throughout the school year. In addition, MAP will be utilized as the initial assessment towards gifted identification beginning the 2016-2017 school year for students in grades K-10.
