 Curriculum and Instruction


The Division of Curriculum and Instruction supports evidence-based instructional practices and strategies for differentiated, innovative, and effective teaching and learning based on the State-adopted standards in support of a balanced curriculum for the whole child.  

Georgia K-12 teachers in collaboration with post-secondary educators, business and industry representatives, parents, and educational agencies and organizations work to develop challenging and relevant standards. 

Georgia standards are reviewed for revision on a regular cycle to stay current with an ever-changing, fast-paced, and technological global society. Georgia standards for all content areas, along with sample instructional resources, are available on GeorgiaStandards.Org.

Home Schools Curriculum

The Georgia Department of Education does not endorse, promote or provide a curriculum for your home study program. Each parent/guardian must decide which curriculum is best for their child and then purchase the curriculum on their own. You may search the Internet for “homeschool curriculum reviews” and read what other people are saying about each curriculum so you can make an informed decision.

Georgia’s Systems of Continuous Improvement 

The Georgia Department of Education’s strategic plan emphasizes transforming the agency into one that provides meaningful support to schools and districts. The agency has developed a common, continuous improvement framework to ensure that these efforts are aligned across all agency divisions, departments, and programs. The Georgia’s Systems of Continuous Improvement framework focuses on the systems and structures (the “what”) that must be in place for sustained improvement in student outcomes. It also utilizes a problem-solving model (the “how”) to provide a clear process for identifying improvement needs, planning for improvement, and implementing, monitoring, and evaluating the improvement efforts.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
