Teaching and Learning



  Welcome to the Teaching and Learning website of Oglethorpe County Schools. The Department of Teaching and Learning oversees the Kindergarten through 12th grade core program delivery, including reading, language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. Oversight also includes the areas of art, music, physical education, counseling, and school media services. The department operates a number of programs outside of the school day/year, including summer school, after school programs and free tutoring (high school only). 

    This website contains several useful sections. For example, you can learn about specific content areas, assessments, and access curriculum documents and resources.
