    Welcome to the Curriculum and Instruction page. Our system strives to: 

    • Collaborate to support the needs of all the schools’ stakeholders
    • Make decisions based on data
    • Engage, educate, and empower our students through academic rigor and a positive school culture
    • Be passionate about the success of all students
    • Provide authentic learning experiences for all
    • Our departments provide instructional leadership, support, and professional development to maximize learning for students in grades K-12.

    All public schools in the state of Georgia use the Georgia Standards of Excellence to guide our curriculum and instruction. The goal of these research-based standards is to prepare all students to become career and college ready.
