Fort Valley was established as a trading post in the early 1820's by James A. Everett and incorporated as a city in 1856. Byron, like many other towns, grew up around a railroad. The community was a flag-stop known as "Number One and One-Half Station." The town was incorporated in 1874 and named for Lord Byron, the English poet. The village of Powersville was first named Station One when the Southwestern Railroad was being built from Macon to Albany in 1852. Then its more suitable name was given in honor of Col.

Georgia Department of Education Announces New Testing System

June 4, 2014 – The Georgia Department of Education will implement a new testing system, the Georgia Milestones Assessment System (Georgia Milestones) during the 2014-2015 academic year. The new system will replace both the CRCT and the EOCT.

Georgia Milestones will be aligned to the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS) and will require more from students than the CRCT and EOCT it replaces, in order to better prepare students for college and career and to provide a more realistic picture of academic progress. A major benefit of the new system is that it is one consistent testing program across grades 3-12, whereas previously students took a series of individual tests.
