GEMS Annual AKS Review
The annual review of the Academic Knowledge and Skills (AKS) curriculum is open and runs through Oct. 12. Through the review process, parents, staff, and community members can give feedback on new AKS (Academic Knowledge and Skills) standards developed to align with the Georgia Standards of Excellence and/or Georgia Performance Standards. The AKS spells out the essential concepts students are expected to know and skills they should acquire in a given grade, subject, or course. This review is addressing AKS in career and technical education, Health and PE, and core academic courses. Input on these courses will be given via an online survey.
On Nov. 5, the GEMS Oversight Committee--a group of community and school system representatives charged with the annual review of the AKS curriculum-- will review the suggestions and curriculum director comments before making recommendations to CEO/Superintendent J. Alvin Wilbanks for adoption by the School Board.
