State Board of Education proposes revisions to CCGPS standards in ELA, math
Proposed changes posted for public comment for 60 days

November 12, 2014 – The State Board of Education has posted, for a 60-day public comment period, revisions to the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS) in English Language Arts and math. 

The standards were revised based on a formal review and evaluation process, as directed by an executive order from Governor Nathan Deal. The review and evaluation process included several survey opportunities, along with legislative and State Board of Education listening sessions. 

“Through this process, we have taken every opportunity to hear the concerns of educators, parents, and other stakeholders,” State Superintendent Dr. John Barge said. “It’s on the basis of that feedback that we are proposing these changes. This revision is not a retreat from our standards, but a refinement to ensure they are the best standards for Georgia’s students.”  

As part of the review process, survey feedback was collected and analyzed by the University System of Georgia. A working committee representing Georgia public school teachers, post-secondary staff, parents, and instructional leaders made revisions to the standards based on public feedback and recommendations from survey results for standards with less than 90 percent approval. ELA and Mathematics Advisory Committees then reviewed the recommended changes, and provided additional suggestions based on public feedback. 

An analysis of the results of the GaDOE Common Core Standards Survey for RESAs (Regional Education Service Agencies) is attached. View the proposed revisions here. To provide feedback on the revisions, contact one of the following:  

·         Pam Smith, Director of Curriculum and Instruction,

·         Sandi Woodall, Program Manager for Mathematics,

·         Carolyn Waters, Program Manager for English Language Arts,

·         Dr. Martha Reichrath, Deputy State Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, 

Note: Some survey respondents, as well as the Academic Review Committee, felt that certain standards needed to also be emphasized in the teacher guidance documents developed by the Department of Education for each grade/course and subject. Some of the recommendations to be emphasized in Guidance and Professional Learning include: phonics instruction; cursive writing; literature and informational text; traditional computing methods; and the memorization of addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts.
