
Redeliver using GPS materials
Redeliver using free Online resources





Access through GSO web site (SSt page)

training)
Password protected
SSt has discussion board, quizzes, activities
Use in small groups, Dept meetings
New Graduation Rule
Why Do We Need a New Rule?






New GPS Math in 2008
Higher expectations, value of diploma
College and work-ready requirements
Special ed diploma is a dead-end
Need one diploma, with supports
American Diploma Project
What Issues Must Be Addressed?





Tiered diploma or one diploma
Common core for all students
High school credit in middle school
Impact on testing (GHSGT, EOCT, cut
score decisions)
Georgia Virtual School/online credits
What Issues Must Be Addressed?
Requirements for:
 Mathematics
 English/Language Arts
 Science
 Social Studies
 Foreign Language
 Health/PE
 Career Tech
 Electives
 Advisement

Proposed Changes
Requirements for Mathematics
 All students must complete 4 units of
mathematics, through Math 3 or higher
 Eliminate the Core Math sequence
 EOCTs in first two years – progress
monitoring
 Support classes, interventions for all
Proposed Changes
Requirements for English/Language Arts
 All students must complete 4 units of
English
 English 1, 2, 3 required of all; English 4
(options)
 EOCTs in ELA 1 and 2 (conventions and
reading) – progress monitoring
Proposed Changes
Requirements for Science
 All students must complete 3 units
 1 full unit of biology/AP required (EOCT)
 1 unit of a physical science required (EOCT)
(chemistry/AP, physics/AP, or physical
science)
 1 unit of an earth science required (Earth
Systems or Environmental Science) or an AP
course can be substituted
Proposed Changes
Requirements for Social Studies
 All students must complete 3 units
 Required Courses:




World History (EOCT)
US History (EOCT)
Government (1/2 unit)
Economics (1/2 unit, EOCT)

High School Teacher Training






Team of 4 teachers from every Georgia high school
 1 algebra, 1geometry, 1 statistics, 1 special
education teacher
Time
 3 days/8 hours per day
 2 follow-up days during the ’07-’08 school year
PLUs recommended
Delivered in each of the 13 RESA sites at local high
schools/ 2 additional metro sites
Delivered over 2-week period (May 29-31, June 5-7)
Trainers: DOE staff and others selected by DOE
High School Teacher Training


Content training based on Math 1 Framework
Designed and delivered using components of
research-based best practice for PD





content-based
modeled using research-based best practice
related to student learning
utilizing classroom materials and resources,

Interventions
for Struggling Learners
How Can We Help Struggling
Learners Meet High Standards?



Interventions Summit – January
Reading Summit – March
Look at current practices and needs



How do we identify struggling learners?
What are we doing to help them succeed?
What needs to be done to help all students
meet GPS standards and graduation
requirements?
How Can We Help Struggling
Learners Meet High Standards?


Feedback from administrators, teachers
Use feedback to:



Create interventions strategies resource
materials for schools
Create support classes for content areas
(math, science, others?)
Plan additional training on differentiated
instruction
How Can We Help Struggling
Learners Meet High Standards?
