Georgia's One-Stop Shop for Teachers: Redesigned Teacher Resource Link

Dear teachers,

I wanted to let you know about a new resource available to you starting today. Based on your feedback and suggestions, our team has worked directly with Georgia teachers to completely redesign and enhance the Teacher Resource Link available through the State Longitudinal Data System (SLDS).

The redesigned Teacher Resource Link is Georgia’s one-stop shop for teachers, with user-friendly search options and more than 28,000 resources categorized by grade-level standards. The new site features an Essential Toolkit for teachers along with curriculum maps, frameworks, glossaries, teacher guidance and downloadable resources. Please note that there are resources for all grade levels, and we are excited to roll out the Essential Toolkit for K-5 ELA and math resources today. Further updates for other subjects and middle and high school are currently in development.

To access these resources, click on the “TRL” tab within the State Longitudinal Data System (SLDS).

As I’ve traveled the state and spoken with Georgia teachers, this is feedback I’ve heard again and again. You, as teachers, need a better way to find vetted, relevant, high-quality resources for classroom use. After two years of work and the involvement of many classroom teachers across our state, we’re hopeful the redesigned TRL will meet that need.

The new site features a cleaner design and a simple user interface, allowing you to build a “shopping cart” of downloadable resources to save, store, and share. You can sort by grade level and resource type, and new advanced search options make it easier to find documents.

The redesigned TRL can be a powerful tool for your classroom, providing coherent instructional resources aligned with state standards and meeting your students’ needs. I hope you’ll find it useful as you prepare for the coming school year, and would love to hear your feedback. Please reply to this email and let me know what you think, or use the hashtag #GATeacherResources to share on social media.

I’m wishing each one of you a refreshing end to the summer and a wonderful start to a productive school year. Each day, I grow more grateful for the work you do on behalf of Georgia’s students.
