Duluth District and Curriculum
Duluth Public Schools are a part of Gwinnett County Public Schools. The curriculum includes a set of standards, Academic Knowledge and Skills (AKS) that is aligned with Common Core Georgia Performance Standards. The curriculum prepares students for what they need to know and be able to do to move to the next grade level and be successful in the future. The AKS curriculum also prepares students for national achievement tests, such as SAT and ACT, state writing assessments (for 3rd, 5th, 8th and 11th grades), and End of Grade and End of Course competency tests.
We currently cover the following Duluth-area school district: Gwinnett County Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Duluth District Curriculum
Elementary school students spend time in English Language Arts reading more non-fiction texts, progressing to more challenging texts and using evidence from what is read in their writing. Students will demonstrate their understanding and communication through writing. Mathematics learning for K-5 students involves more time on less topics, with practice and memorization of math facts and application of math skills to real-world problems to demonstrate understanding.
Middle school and high school students move from foundational learning to more advanced, critical thinking and reasoning. English Language Arts learning focuses on increasingly more complex text, more time spent on informational text and writing than literary. Literacy is also integrated into Science, Social Studies and technical subjects. Mathematics learning includes connecting mathematical concepts of proportion, geometry, scale drawing, algebraic equations and modeling for contextual problems.

Chalk Talk: Preparing for the End of the School Year
School is coming to an end in the next couple months. The last two months of school involve End-of-Grade test preparation and test taking. After that, the students can relax a little and enjoy the remaining days with their classmates and teacher as they look forward to the summer and moving to the next grade. During those last two months, make sure to contact your child’s teacher to learn of any areas your child still could use some help in; areas or skills you could work with him or her on to continue improving. This can not only help during the end-of-year testing but also in preparing your child for the more advanced learning that will occur during school next year in a higher grade. Continue to encourage your child to try their best; to students, the end of the school year signifies summer. That is it. Remind them that they need to “hang in there” a little longer, give the effort they gave (and maybe a little more) to this point in school, and that they will have their summer soon. Staying focused, for parents, teachers and students, during this time of the year can be hard. Just giving that little extra motivation to ourselves and our children can make the summer that much more rewarding.
