Welcome to the Academics Section of the Rome City Schools website. The individual academic pages are listed on the left.
The curriculum for Rome City Schools is based on the Georgia Performance
Standards for grades K-12. The Georgia Performance Standards (GPS)
provide clear expectations for instruction, assessment, and student
work. They define the level of work that demonstrates achievement of the
standards, enabling a teacher to know “how good is good enough.” The
performance standards identify the knowledge and skills needed to
problem-solve, reason, communicate, and make connections with other
information. The GPS includes the content standards (the
concepts/content a student is expected to master), suggested performance
tasks, sample student work, and teacher commentary on that work.
The Georgia Performance Standards have been implemented fully in the following areas:
English Language Arts and Reading
Modern Languages & Latin
Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education (CTAE)
GPS for Students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities
