Curriculum and Instruction

Curriculum is a vital part of every child’s education. It is the basic foundation each child is offered upon entering the doors of Jeff Davis County Schools. Our curriculum is based on Georgia’s state adopted standards. Our teachers use these standards to link learning from one year to the next in students’ educational journey. Very simply put curriculum is the knowledge and skills we expect students to learn.

Instruction is “how” we teach that knowledge to students. We employ a myriad of instructional strategies to teach the curriculum in our schools. We believe in research-based best practices that have been proven to aid students’ retention of information and cause students to think at a deeper level. Teachers are constantly enhancing their tool kit of instructional strategies through professional learning.
