GCPS invites community to participate in online review of instructional resources

October 1, 2021

     Starting Friday, Oct. 1, Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) invites Gwinnett parents and residents to join GCPS staff members and students by participating in a review of proposed instructional resources for select grades and courses in Language Arts, Social Studies, Career and Technical Education, and Foreign Language. The public review begins Friday, Oct. 1, and runs until Sunday, Oct. 31. Additional supplemental materials will be added to the review on Oct. 15.

     GCPS holds an extensive review before adopting resources for classroom use. Resources submitted by publishers were reviewed prior to the pilot by parents, community members, teachers, and administrators for alignment with the school system’s Academic Knowledge and Skills (AKS) curriculum. While the resources are being piloted at select schools, a public review takes place allowing GCPS staff, GCPS students, and members of the Gwinnett community to review student instructional resources and provide input on the proposed resources.

     This year’s review will be held virtually. To begin the review, please visit this link. Based on all input gathered from the multi-step review, a recommendation will be made to the Gwinnett County Board of Education for adoption of resources in early 2022.

     For more information about the instructional review process, please contact the Office of Instructional Resources and Support, 678-301-6828.
