Welcome to the Teaching and Learning Department. Our mission is to provide leadership, service and support for Oconee County Schools. We work collaboratively to guide the system’s curriculum, instructional design, assessment practices, and strategic planning to ensure teacher effectiveness and student learning across all grades and courses.

Oconee County Schools believes in the use of aligned acts of improvements guided by a single improvement plan for each school and the system. The district strategic plan revolves around the five strategic goal areas of the school system:
  1. Teaching and Learning
  2. Stakeholder Engagement
  3. Human Resources
  4. Operations and Student Services
  5. Business Services
The OCS Balanced Scorecard is based on the five goal areas and includes performance measures, goals, and outcomes. The OCS Strategic Plan outlines the initiatives and action steps that support the goals.

Georgia Standards contains standards and other resources from the Georgia Department of Education.
