MCSS Citizens’ Academy Visits GHS

On Friday, February 14th, members of the MCSS Citizens’ Academy visited GHS to learn about its instructional programs. Participants heard from Instructional Coach, Ms. Elise Heaton, about current high school curriculum, state-mandated assessments, CTAE career pathways, opportunities for dual enrollment at West Georgia Tech, and new technologies and resources available to our high school students. Ms. Heaton then led the participants on a tour of the school, during which they were able to pop into some classrooms to see some of the great things are students are doing. Finally, participants returned to the Media Center where they heard a presentation from ELA Teacher, Ms. Ann Ferguson, and some of her students about the engaging activities they’ve been doing in her classes this year, as well as the Vision Builders Book Club she started at GHS.
