About Us


All Georgia students have access to an educational path that ensures the academic and technical skills necessary to successfully enter the workforce.


The Governor’s Office of Student Achievement will ensure that Georgia’s schools and the programs and systems they employ have a positive impact on student achievement and long-term success through:

  • Collaboration – Working with Georgia’s P-20 educational providers and agencies to further the Governor’s educational priorities,
  • Accountability – Conducting research and audits of educational programs and initiatives,
  • Transparency – Providing access to educational data to Georgia stakeholders, and
  • Data Analysis – Publishing annual K-12 School Reports to meet the legislative requirements of Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).


To achieve our mission, GOSA conducts all business according to high standards of transparency, accessibility, objectivity, strategic collaboration, and innovation.


While GOSA's direct affiliation remains with the Governor's Office, it also works closely with all of Georgia's education agencies, including the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE), the University System of Georgia (USG), the Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL), the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG), the Georgia Student Finance Commission (GSFC), and the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC).
