 Curriculum, Instruction, and School Climate


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Division of Curriculum, Instruction, and School Climate 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 Standards of Excellence

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 on a regular cycle to stay current with our ever-changing, fast-paced, and technological society.  All content area standards, along with sample instructional resources​, are available on GeorgiaStandards.Org.

School Climate

We recognize that students learn best in schools with positive climates, where they feel socially​, emotionally and physically safe. In schools with positive school climates people are engaged and respected.  Simply put, if a child is not physically and mentally in attendance, learning cannot take place.  To learn more about the importance of school climate and evidence-based solutions (e.g. PBIS) to improve climate please visit: School Climate.​
