Instructional Resource Public Review
Staff, parents, and Gwinnett community members are invited to provide input on proposed instructional resources for select courses in Language Arts, Social Studies, Career and Technical Education, and Foreign Language, conducted as a virtual review Oct. 1 through Oct. 31. Before adopting instructional resources for classroom use, Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) undergoes an extensive selection process. The division of curriculum and instructional support convened multiple committees involving various stakeholder groups to select resources to consider for adoption. The resources were reviewed for alignment with the school system’s Academic Knowledge and Skills (AKS) curriculum as well as strength of instructional strategies, freedom from sensitivity or bias, and diverse representation. As a part of the full selection process, resources are piloted in GCPS classrooms. Data from the public review and pilots will be considered in making adoption recommendations to the Board of Education in early 2021. To begin the public review, please visit this link.
