On February 19, 2015, the State Board of Education (SBOE) voted to rename the ELA and Mathematics standards to the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE). The recently revised and SBOE approved ELA and Mathematics standards for implementation beginning for the 2015-2016 school year will be called the ELA and Mathematics Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE).
All coding for standards and related instructional resources will be updated with the new GSE for use beginning in the 2015-2016 school year. For example, ELACC3RF3 will be changed to ELAGSE3RF3. All GPS and related documents in other content areas will be renamed to reflect the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) as revisions occur.
See below for links to the ELA and Mathematics summary of changes for use in the 2015-2016 school year.
