DeKalb Schools to present new curriculum in public meetings

DeKalb County School District officials are taking their new curriculum on the road. 

The district announced two events on Oct. 10 and 11 for the community to get a glance of the recently revamped curriculum. The “Curriculum Road Show,” will feature members of the administration demonstrating how the “student-centered” instruction works. 

Tuesday, the road show will begin at Tucker High School, 5036 Lavista Road in Tucker, at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, the show will be at Columbia High School, 2106 Columbia Dr. in Decatur, at 6:30 p.m.

The new curriculum was approved by the DeKalb County Board of Education in the spring. At the time, district officials said teachers from within the district were working with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt using state standards as well as their own experience to structure a curriculum and ensure students were not left behind in any of the lessons.

District officials said earlier this year about 88 teams of 228 teachers created 564 units of instruction that will be implemented for the current school year. 

The chief academic officer calls this academic fresh start innovative.
