Starting Sept. 10, staff, parents, and members of the community are invited to participate in a review of proposed curriculum resources for Fine Arts to provide their input. The public review runs until Oct. 5.
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. During the next phase of the district’s review process, a public review will take place allowing all GCPS staff and members of the Gwinnett community to review student textbooks, digital resources, and associated teacher resources for Fine Arts for grades K-12.
The review is scheduled at the following times at GCPS' J. Alvin Wilbanks Instructional Support Center (ISC), located at 437 Old Peachtree Road NW in Suwanee.
Weekday Hours: Monday, Sept. 10, to Friday, Oct 5, 8 a.m.–4 p.m.
Evening Hours: Thursday, Sept. 13, 5–8 p.m.
Saturday Hours: Saturday, Sept. 15, 10 a.m.–2 p.m.
Both print and digital resources will be provided for review in the hallway between Buildings 100 and 200 at the ISC during review hours. Based on all input gathered from this multi-step review, a recommendation will be made to the Gwinnett County Board of Education for adoption of resources.
