Waycross District and Curriculum
Waycross students attend Ware County Schools. Students follow the Georgia Performance Standards, in alignment with Common Core State Standards. The curriculum includes expectations of performance within core subjects at each grade level of what students should be learning and need to know for college and career. The standards are found in K-12 language arts, with literacy standards integrated into science, social studies and technical education in the middle and high school grades, and in K-10 mathematics.
We currently cover the following Waycross-area school district: Ware County Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waycross District Curriculum
The Georgia Performance Standards intend to make learning rigorous and relevant, applicable through problem-based teaching. Students are provided with the skills, content and knowledge to be college and career ready, using informational technical texts and increasing text complexity in core subjects to do so. From kindergarten to twelfth grade, students learn, perform and apply concepts to everyday activities of their daily life.
Learning is integrated between subjects for students to apply concepts and skills interchangeably. Even in areas of agriculture, computers, family life and health, students get involved in the many directions they could “be when they grow up.” The extracurricular activities that are available support many students goals and give them the opportunity to attend conferences, workshops, academic competitions and participate in community service and awareness campaigns and students become aware of their abilities.

Chalk Talk: Home Economics
Although a “class” or set of electives found in the high school grades, the activities and skills within this “subject area” can be taught as early as kindergarten. What some would call chores, others may call those activities just part of their everyday. Your child should be involved as well. Gathering, sorting and folding laundry, sweeping or vacuuming, watering the plants, filling or emptying the dishwasher…..all of these are learning moments for the youngest of children. Teenagers could be involved in the cooking of dinner, cleaning areas around the house, even collecting coupons or helping manage household spending. Involve your child or teen in your everyday or weekly household “chores” and they’ll benefit tremendously when on their own. The summer is the perfect time to begin, or continue, the activities and skills your children will need at some point in their life.
