Teachers in Whitfield County Schools design lessons based on state standards, which are available to review for all grade levels at GeorgiaStandards.org. We believe it is important for families to take an active role in their child’s education and encourage them to review the standards required by the state.
It is important for teachers to design work based on these standards to ensure students are prepared for annual statewide assessments. Preparing students to excel on these assessments ensures they are ready to learn content taught in the next grade.
Families with concerns and/or questions about the content expected to be covered in class should contact their child’s principal.
