The State Board of Education approved State School Superintendent Richard Woods’ recommendation to adopt the new Georgia’s K-12 Mathematics Standards. The 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 school years will be dedicated to teacher training on the new standards, with implementation to follow in 2023-2024.
The new standards are truly Georgia-developed. They were drafted by Georgia mathematics teachers 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, understandable, and present a reasonable amount of content in each year.
Throughout the current school year, teachers will receive training and professional learning, new resources will be developed, and assessments will be aligned to the updated standards. In addition, communication will be provided to parents to ensure a smooth transition.
