GCPS invites community to participate in review of language arts instructional resources for middle school

April 17, 2017

     Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) invites parents and members of the community to join GCPS staff members in a review of proposed teacher curriculum resources. Parents and community members can provide input on the proposed resources by participating in the review. The public review runs through Friday, May 12, 2017.

     GCPS holds an extensive review before adopting resources for classroom use. Resources submitted by publishers were reviewed prior to the pilot by parents, community members, teachers, and administrators for alignment with the school system’s Academic Knowledge and Skills (AKS) curriculum. During the next phase of the district’s review process, a public review will take place allowing all GCPS staff and members of the Gwinnett community to review teacher resources for Language Arts Education for grades 6-8. 

     The review is scheduled weekdays (Mon.-Fri.) from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Friday, May 12, at GCPS' Instructional Support Center (ISC), located at 437 Old Peachtree Road NW in Suwanee.
Print resources will be provided for review in the hallway between Buildings 100 and 200 at the ISC during review hours. Based on all input gathered from this multi-step review, a recommendation will be made to the Gwinnett County Board of Education for adoption of resources.

     For more information about the instructional review process, please contact Jadd Jarusinski, Director of Instructional Resources and Support, 678-301-6828.
