The Office of School Improvement provides a statewide system of support and process for school improvement. Programs include the School and District Effectiveness Division, Teacher and Leader Effectiveness Division, and Federal Programs/Title I and Outreach Programs.
School and District Effectiveness
The work of the
School and District Effectiveness Division is to engage with and support
districts and schools in their improvement efforts, providing helpful tools,
resources, and professional learning.
The School and District Effectiveness Division also collaborates with
other entities within the Georgia Department of Education and external agencies
such as the Regional Education Service Agencies (RESAs), the Georgia Learning
Resources System (GLRS), and colleges and universities to provide district and
school support. While the School and District Effectiveness Division works
with all Georgia districts and schools, the primary focus is on schools
experiencing achievement challenges:
SIG Schools, Priority Schools, Alert Schools, Focus Schools, and Reward
Teacher and Leader Effectiveness

Federal Programs/Title I and Outreach Programs
The Federal Programs/Title I and Outreach Programs Division provides technical assistance, resources, and program monitoring of local education agencies to ensure that all children have an opportunity to obtain a high quality education and to achieve proficiency on high academic standards.
