Pre-K to Grade 5 Curriculum


Excellence Every Day

Excellence every day is the standard for teaching and learning in Lowndes County Schools. The department of teaching and learning is committed to providing students and teachers the strategies and resources vital for success in grades PK-12. Providing quality work that is challenging is the primary focus of all instructional programs in Lowndes County Schools.
The purpose of the Lowndes County School System's Pre-Kindergarten - 12 curriculum is to ensure that all students have access to the same core of significant content at a specific instructional level, from teacher to teacher, and school to school. The staff in the Department of Teaching and Learning can provide information regarding the curriculum, the instructional program, professional development opportunities, federal programs (Title I, Title II), and the state-testing program.
 

Georgia Curriculum Standards

GeorgiaStandards.Org (GSO) is a free, public website providing information and resources necessary to help meet the educational needs of students. The goal of this web site is to provide information that will enhance and support teaching and learning of Georgia standards.

All standards and resources are available in printable document formats. Included are hundreds of videos demonstrating best practices for the classroom. From the public web site, parents have quick access to background information about Georgia standards, why they were created, and how they are being implemented. Additionally, parents may browse the standards and suggested frameworks that may be utilized by the individual curriculum areas.

GeorgiaStandards.Org, as a part of the Georgia Department of Education, is committed to improving student achievement. Whether you are an educator or a parent, we hope you will find this site to be a valuable source of information and helpful with your student's education process.

On February 19, 2015, the State Board of Education (SBOE) voted to rename the ELA and Mathematics standards to the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE). The recently revised and SBOE approved ELA and Mathematics standards for implementation beginning for the 2015-2016 school year will be called the ELA and Mathematics Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE).
All coding for standards and related instructional resources will be updated with the new GSE for use beginning in the 2015-2016 school year. For example, ELACC3RF3 will be changed to ELAGSE3RF3. All GPS and related documents in other content areas will be renamed to reflect the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) as revisions occur.
 
See below for links to the ELA and Mathematics summary of changes for use in the 2015-2016 school year.
