The State Board of Education approved State School Superintendent Richard Woods’ recommendation to adopt Georgia’s K-12 Mathematics Standards. The 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 school years have been dedicated to teacher training on the new standards, with implementation in the classroom with students to follow in 2023-2024.
The new standards are Georgia-developed. They were drafted by mathematics teachers in Georgia with input from educational leaders, parents, students, business and industry leaders, and community members. They are designed to provide a strong foundation, to be clear and understandable, and to present a reasonable amount of content in each year.
Throughout the school year, teachers will receive training and professional learning on the new standards. Additionally, new resources will be developed and state assessments will be updated to align with the new standards. These updated resources will be released in time for implementation beginning with the 2023-2024 school year. Ongoing communication will be provided to parents and community stakeholders to ensure a smooth transition.
