Toombs County School System is committed to delivering a standards-rich curriculum using research-based best instructional practices, strategies, and resources. Toombs County promotes a comprehensive approach to assessment which includes regular data analysis to monitor student progress and inform and adjust instruction. Toombs County utilizes the Georgia Standards of Excellence as its foundational curriculum.

Toombs County School Systems’ vision of “Excellence for All” highlights its commitment to all stakeholders. We expect everyone involved (students, faculty, staff, parents, community partnerships, etc.) to be held to higher standards of excellence. All students enrolled in Toombs County Schools will be provided engaging and supportive opportunities for learning. We believe all students can grow and achieve. Toombs County Schools follows the Georgia Standards of Excellence. For more information on Georgia’s standards, visit the Georgia Standards of Excellence webpage.

Toombs County School System provides learning experiences tailored to meet the individual needs of every student.  Standards are clear, attainable, and high enough to ensure that all students are intellectually challenged.  Assessments are designed to inform students of their degree of success.  Assessments also provide teachers with information needed to design work that is meaningful, challenging and engaging for each student.

Through careful analysis of our data, needs and challenges, the district has identified three instructional priorities on which we will focus our work: (1) Align, maintain and monitor curriculum, instruction and assessments, (2) Increase student mastery of standards, and (3) Improve student growth.

District-wide initiatives such as Standards-Based Classrooms, Deconstructed  standards , Differentiated data-driven Instruction, and using research-based instructional strategies have been implemented to ensure a comprehensive learning environment for all students.
