Americus District and Curriculum
Americus Schools are a part of Sumter County Schools. Teaching and learning follow a set of student performance standards, Georgia Performance Standards, at every grade level that prepare students for what they need to know and be prepared for in their future. English Language Arts learning includes reading, speaking, listening and use of language. Mathematics learning focuses foundational concepts of computation, measurement and spatial recognition, and data analysis. Literacy standards are also integrated into Science, Social Studies and technical education.
We currently cover the following Americus-area school district: Sumter County Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Americus District Curriculum
The curriculum used in grades PK-12 aligns with the state standards and is aligned both across grade level classrooms and vertically between grade levels. Also, the district believes that curricula should be research-based, high expectations should be set for students, and teachers should constantly reflect on their instructional practices. Finally, the district provides professional development in the area of instructional coaching, which allows educators to collaborate on the curriculum.
In grades K-8, in English language arts, students have specific expectations for when they are reading, the foundational skills that they should achieve (separated into categories such as print concepts, phonological awareness, fluency, etc.), for when they are writing, in speaking and listening, and in using language and vocabulary. For example, when third grade students read, they should be able to form their own point-of-view of the text and determine how it differs from that of the author. The K-8 math curriculum focuses on preparing students for Algebra I.

Chalk Talk: Student Growth
Every year, your student improves in some area – writing, vocabulary, addition, art, classroom behavior - or maybe overall. Not only is it exciting to watch your child grow as an individual but it is also worth recognizing and remembering the growth they make in school. Teacher conferences and report cards are the most obvious times you learn of the improvements your child makes. However, there are also those moments when your student comes home and shows you a comment on their test or project, or you receive an email from your student’s teacher about how well he or she did on a presentation. These are times to hold onto that paper, project or save the email. However he or she demonstrates their improvement it is worth saving. By doing so, not only will you be able to look back at the progress your child made as they moved from grade to grade but you and your child will be able to share those moments again as they get older.
