As a public school system we teach the academic standards set by our state, which are currently the Georgia Standards of Excellence and the Georgia Performance Standards. We welcome the opportunity for our parents and educators to give objective and constructive feedback on these standards.With highly qualified faculty in place, the school system seeks their input to select curriculum materials that they and administrators feel are best to teach the standards. The selection of curriculum is always a local decision.

While the state sets academic standards, it is our job locally to ensure that we hire the most highly qualified faculty to teach the standards. In Bulloch County we invest in continued professional learning for our faculty to help them be most effective. We also provide proper time for faculty to plan and collaborate with their subject- and grade-level peers in professional learning communities . 

Because Bulloch County Schools uses professional learning communities in our system, these are a natural vehicle for faculty and administrators to constantly gather feedback on standards, curriculum and teaching methods. This helps ensure that our faculty are well-trained and well-prepared to lead students to success.
