CAMPUS VISITOR PROCEDURE
At Buford Academy we care about the safety of our students. Because we want to ensure that our students are protected, there is a visitor safety procedure in place. All visitors will be required to present their State issued picture ID upon entering the building. This is required for ALL VISITORS, so please have your identification ready EACH time you visit.
In an effort to provide you and your students with more resources to prepare for the Georgia Milestones test, we have created new Georgia Milestones Information pages here on the BA web site. You can access it from the Quick Links on the top right of the screen, under the PARENT INFO tab at the top of the screen, or under the STUDENT ZONE.
