The state of Georgia moved away from Common Core Georgia Performance Standards in 2015 and replaced those standards with Georgia Standards of Excellence in Reading, English Language Arts, and Math. Currently, Science, Social Studies, Fine Arts, and other courses remain Georgia Performance Standards courses; however, Georgia Standards of Excellence for Social Studies and Science will be implemented in the 2017-18 school year.
All of the Georgia Standards of Excellence were developed with extensive input from teachers, parents, representatives from the higher education field as well as the business community. With the Georgia Standards of Excellence, our students are exposed to more rigorous content while maintaining state-level autonomy over curriculum and testing.
