Parents and Guardians,

The new Georgia K-12 English Language Arts Standards were approved in May 2023 by the State Board of Education. These standards will be implemented during the 2025-2026 school year. As a result, Rockdale County Public Schools will hold a stakeholder review for adopting English Language Arts textbooks/resources between January 10 and January 26, 2024. Parents and teachers are invited to review the resources and provide feedback to help in the final selection of K-5 English Language Arts resources. All resources can be viewed digitally and onsite at each school. We encourage all stakeholders to provide feedback. Please use the links below to review the resources and provide feedback. Thank you for your continued support.
