 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.
