Community invited to review GCPS curriculum

SUWANEE - Parents, educators and community members are invited to participate in the annual review of Gwinnett County Public Schools' Academic Knowledge and Skills (AKS) curriculum.

The annual review ensures the school system's curriculum covers state requirements, as well as community and educator expectations for learning, according to a news release.

Those interested can make suggestions on the AKS curriculum by filling out the AKS Review Form, available on the school system's Web site, www.gwinnett.k12.ga.us. The form should be submitted by Nov. 9 by postal mail to Curriculum Development Office, Instructional Support Center, 437 Old Peachtree Road NW, Suwanee, GA 30024-2978 or by e-mail to AKS_Review@gwinnett.k12.ga.us.

All suggestions for changes to the curriculum will be considered by the GEMS Oversight Committee, a group of community and school system representatives charged with the annual review of the AKS. That committee will recommend changes to Superintendent J. Alvin Wilbanks for adoption by the Board of Education. The approved changes will be implemented in the 2009-10 school year.
