The Division of Curriculum and Instruction 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 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 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
Instructional Resources for Families and Teachers
Georgia schools are closed due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, causing thousands of students to be without access to educational instruction. GPB, in partnership with Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE), is now offering broadcast programming and accompanying digital resources that adhere to Georgia standards to provide continued at-home learning.
Pre-K students through 12th grade can now access free, educational daytime programming designated for each grade level weekdays on GPB-TV. Georgia families and teachers can also access Pre-K through 5th grade resources with 6-12 resources to be added in the coming days.
The Department of Education also provides many free instructional resources that are aligned to the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE). Resources selected by GaDOE content area specialists, to be used by Georgia teachers, can be found here:

Home Schools Curriculum
The Georgia Department of Education does not endorse, promote or provide a curriculum for your home study program. Each parent/guardian must decide which curriculum is best for their child and then purchase the curriculum on their own. You may search the Internet for “homeschool curriculum reviews” and read what other people are saying about each curriculum so you can make an informed decision. Visit GaDOE Home School for more information. Contact GaDOE Home School office at (404) 656-3083 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
