The Douglasville School System is part of the Douglas County School System and under the direction of the Douglas County Board of Education. This school system adheres to all Common Core requirements that are issued by the U.S. Department of Education. Through following the Common Core this district can ensure parents that by the time a student graduates they are ready for either college or work. While the Common Core covers all subject areas the focus is on literacy across content. Students still learn Math, Science and Social Studies principles and skills yet, they are learning it from a literacy perspective.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Douglasville District Curriculum
Through utilization of the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) in the area of Math, students are involved in participating in regular hands-on activities to help develop a long-term understanding of mathematics. With the implementation of these standards, all students will move from middle school having completed all the skills and concepts of what was formerly considered Algebra I; as well as many geometry skills and concepts. The GPS followed during high school enables students to learn math through an integrated curriculum.
The DCSS has implemented Max Thompson’s Learning-Focused Strategies (LFS) Model for instruction in all K-12 classrooms The Learning Focused Schools model provides approaches and resolutions based on proven practices found in schools with 90 percent of their students achieving proficient or higher on standardized tests. These methods focus on five areas vital to academic success: Planning, Curriculum, Instruction, Assessment, and School Organization.

Chalk Talk: The Use of ‘I’ and ‘You’
How many times do we in our daily conversations say, If you… I think…You should… I want…! Guess what you have already ended the conversation before it even began. These are conversation terminators at the least and more likely argument starters. When studying interpersonal communications we learn that a conversation is a cycle and using the words you and I are not conducive to continuing a cycle of meaningful dialogue. That means you simply get no response and you are not heard. You make the person you are talking to take a defensive stand. Here are a few suggestions to replace the terminating phrases that are mentioned above. Could we talk about…? I feel sad when (action), how can we fix (action)…What would happen if…? What should happen if…? I would like to…? Can you see the difference? These choices give an option to the listener to respond in a meaningful way, causing them to think before they begin to speak.
