Curriculum is defined as a plan for learning. It encompasses all the learning experiences a student encounters under the guidance of the school. The curriculum in Fulton County Schools focuses on the development and application of skills and knowledge as identified by the state of Georgia (Georgia Performance Standards in Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and Quality Core Curriculum in other content areas), national curriculum standards and local system objectives. Interactive learning and hands-on-experience are central to the Board of Education’s vision for the effective delivery of instruction and increased emphasis on higher academic achievement for all children.
The Georgia Performance Standards and Quality Core Curriculum, national standards and local objectives guide system curriculum planning, development of curriculum guides, textbook adoptions and assessments. Curriculum implementation supports the Board of Education’s vision for increased emphasis on academics for all students.

Online Textbook Links
Here is a link to access online textbooks for your child. Please be aware that we follow the Common Core Curriculum in reading, language arts and math and use these textbooks only as a supplement to our instruction. In reading/language arts, we use the Journeys program, Fountas and Pinnell guided reading program, and literacy stations to help support the Common Core Standards.
In Social Studies and Science, we use the Georgia Performance Standards and the textbooks are used as a supplement to our instruction as well.
