Gwinnett County Public Schools invites parents and members of the community to participate in a review of proposed curriculum resources.
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 in Language Arts and Social Studies for select grades and courses.
