Curriculum & Instruction

The Bulloch County Schools Curriculum & Instruction Department is responsible for the following areas: implementation of the Georgia Standards of Excellence and the Georgia Performance Standards, selection of locally-approved curriculum to support the teaching of these standards, instructional methods, Student Support Services, , the development of student learning objectives (SLOs) and assessments for all subjects not tested by standardized tests, gifted instructionalternative educationsocial work and special education.

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.

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 development 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 (PLCs). 

Because Bulloch County Schools uses PLCs 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.

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.


  • In grades one through eight, academically advanced students are eligible for the gifted program's QUEST  classes.
  • Accelerated high school students can take Advanced Placement classes or dual-enrollment college and university classes. Guidance counselors have more information about these programs. 
  • Our comprehensive special education program offers eligible students all services outlined in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  Types of services offered include collaborative and inclusion classes, pullout resource classes and self-contained classes. Our staff includes certified speech therapists and occupational therapists.
