FCS Academics Division

  • Graduation Students

    Our goal is to prepare all students to graduate ready to pursue and succeed on their chosen paths.

    At Fulton County Schools (FCS), we are dedicated to our mission to educate every student to be a responsible, productive citizen. We also are committed to our vision that all students will learn to their full potential.

    We know that a high school diploma is critical for today’s students, but a diploma alone is not enough to ensure success after high school. With that in mind, we will ensure that FCS students graduate prepared to pursue their chosen paths — whether college, career or military — and to succeed on those paths after high school.

GaDOE Posts ELA Standards for Public Comment

  • Based on the recommendation of State School Superintendent Richard Woods, the Georgia Department of Education has posted new K-12 English Language Arts (ELA) standards for a 30-day public comment period. If approved, the standards will be implemented in the 2025-2026 school year to allow time for teacher training. Click this link to view the draft standards and provide feedback – the survey will close on May 1, 2023 at 5 p.m.

    The standards were initially posted for public comment in November 2022. Based on the comments received, teacher committees were reconvened to make updates in response to public feedback. Specifically, GaDOE responded to public feedback by streamlining and strengthening K-12 learning progressions; cleaning up and standardizing formatting; emphasizing grammar, usage, and mechanics; and providing additional teacher clarity. The draft standards leverage the insight and expertise of thousands of Georgians to support ELA instruction that is Georgia-developed and age- and developmentally appropriate. The standards are intentionally designed to provide a strong literacy foundation beginning in the early grades, including the addition of a specific Foundations domain throughout the K-5 standards. Throughout the 2023-2024 and 2024-2025 school years, teachers will receive training and professional learning, new resources will be developed, assessments that are aligned to these standards will be developed, and communication will be provided to parents to ensure a smooth transition.
