Proposed High School English and Mathematics Standards

On November 3, 2016, the SBOE approved the posting of the proposed standards for Post-Secondary Options (PSO) English and Post-Secondary Options (PSO) Mathematics. The proposed PSO English and PSO Mathematics courses were written and submitted by a Georgia school district and are designed to provide increased flexibility for core English and mathematics courses leading to a high school diploma. If approved, PSO English would be a core English course serving as a substitute for American Literature and Composition; PSO Mathematics would be a core mathematics course serving as a substitute for either Analytic Geometry/Geometry or Advanced Algebra/Algebra II. If approved, these courses would be included on the list of state-funded courses beginning in 2016-2017 and will be available for all Georgia school districts for students who entered ninth grade in 2008-2009 or subsequent years.

Drafts of the proposed course standards and surveys for feedback are available for public review and comment from November 4, 2016, until Saturday, December 3, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. EST.
