The goal of the Gainesville City School System Academic team is to support evidence-based instructional practices. While implementing the Georgia Standards of Excellence, teachers are encouraged to use a variety of differentiated and innovative strategies. Through areas of focus such as MTSS and PBIS, the department helps supports the priorities of the Gainesville School System Strategic Plan.
