Perry District and Curriculum
Students of Perry attend Houston County Schools. Students are taught under the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards. Teaching and learning follow a set of guidelines within core subjects at each grade level of what students need to know, at that level and the future. The Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS) are taught in most subject areas: K-12 language arts, with literacy standards integrated into science, social studies and technical education in the middle and high school grades, and K-10 mathematics.
We currently cover the following Perry-area school district: Houston County Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Perry District Curriculum
The curriculum standards are implemented in many schools across Georgia. Developed by education experts, teachers and parents, the intention of the CCGPS is to make learning rigorous and relevant and applicable through problem-based teaching. Students are provided with skills, content and knowledge to be college and career ready. Informational technical texts and increasing text complexity are used in core subjects to increase students cross-disciplinary literacy skills.
By seventh and eighth graders apply their prior knowledge of story or literary elements to the study of poetry and its use of imagery. Students learn to write essays that are properly organized and grammatically correct. Eighth graders learn to define and recognize themes in literature. Parent resources are available at the district website with links to help in further understanding what your child is learning at every grade level.

Chalk Talk: Starting Early
It’s never too early to instill work skills into your child’s activities. Teaching and learning in the classroom integrates skills necessary for work, even in the elementary grades. Children already use skills such as asking questions, responding to a question or an adult’s comment or explaining something to someone. Take Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts. Although not the intention to only make money, these organizations encourage and engage their “scouts” to participate in working situations. Skills such as responsibility, organization, management, approaching and “making a sale,” even ambition are part of selling Girl Scout cookies or the Boy Scout’s popcorn campaign. Your child can learn those same skills outside of the classroom as well: through a lemonade stand, washing cars, walking the neighbor’s pet or mowing yards. With your help, your child will learn “how to work” and the professional and personal skills needed to get and keep work. Choosing an activity they like will help this learning moment; children and teens won’t even know they’re learning and applying skills they’ll need when they are much older.
