Professional Learning/ Instructional Support

Johnson County Schools aligns its curriculum with The Georgia Department of Education.  In addition to the state frameworks, local modifications are used as we provide evidence-based instructional practices and strategies for differentiated, innovative, and effective teaching and learning based on the State-adopted standards.   Clear expectations for instruction, assessment, and student work outcomes (samples of strong work expectations) are the key components of the curriculum. The goal of the instruction is for students to know and understand “How do I know when my work is good enough?” Standards-based classrooms (including lessons with a focused opening, work session, and closing, rubrics, commentary with feedback, and student conferencing) are the cornerstone of our curriculum to be sure students understand what they need to learn and what it takes to get there.

Johnson County Schools is aligned with the new implementation of the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE). The faculty members collaborate with other educators teachers across the state and local stakeholders to maintain that the standards are relevant. 

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.
