     for All Georgia Students

          Information for:
       Bells Ferry Elementary
          March 24, 2011
    Georgia Performance Standards
                (GPS)
   Previous curriculum was the Quality Core
    Curriculum (QCC) for over 20 years

   Currently GPS for 7 years (2005-2012)
       4th/5th grade students entire school career


   Moving to Common Core Georgia
    Performance Standards (CCGPS) (2012-
    2013)
WHY the GPS curriculum?

   Phi Delta Kappa Audit
   Age of QCC
   Lack of Depth and Rigor
   Alignment of Instruction and
    Assessment
   Alignment to International
    Standards
Resulting in…

 Mandate of GPS
    Rigor
    Depth
    Clear Expectations
    Instructional Guide
    Student-Focused
                Accolades of GPS

Why is the Common Core State
 Standards (CCSS) initiative
  important for 2012-2013?

•Disparate standards create confusing
      expectations across the states.

•Global competitive edge is lagging among
      students in the US.

•Current workforce skills do not match 21st
      century workplace demands.
 Why are the Common Core State
Standards for Mathematics right for
             Georgia?

   Previous work with the GPS.

   Prior GPS training ensures a smooth
    transition.

   All of the standards are addressed in the
    GPS.

   CCSS expectations are consistent with a
    single/high-rigor diploma requirement for
    all students.
