Georgia Owned & Grown Standards
Developing High-Quality Standards Right Here in Georgia
Instead of relying on the existing national standards for Science and Social Studies, Superintendent Woods committed to working with Georgia’s teachers to create high quality Science and Social Studies standards. Revisions were made to the standards based on the work of hundreds of Georgia’s teachers and the feedback received from thousands of Georgia’s teachers and community members.
A year gap has been built into the implementation timeline so that professional learning, resources, field tested assessment items, and blueprints are provided up front -- setting up our teachers and students for success.
