Essential Toolkit - TRL Public

New resources are currently being added to the Statewide Longitudinal Data System (SLDS) of the Essential Toolkit within the Teacher Resource Link (TRL Public). SLDS is available to all public school educators in Georgia. If you are not a public educator and need access to resources, please visit TRL Public.

​Distance Learning:

These plans were specifically designed for use during these uncertain times as support for school districts, administrators, teachers, and parents who are working tirelessly to provide students with quality content in a remote format. The plans include both "plugged and unplugged" activities.

Science GSE Feedback Program

Note: Science Resources are developed and reviewed by educators. Be a part of our community by participating in the Resource Feedback Program. We need the help of science teachers to continuously improve the resources GaDOE provides. After you have used a GaDOE Science resource, click here to complete the feedback form.

Professional Learning

Visit the GaDOE science website  for professional learning opportunities, resources, and other information.
NEW GaDOE has launched a new platform to provide the opportunity for science teachers, leaders and GaDOE staff to share thoughts and resources. Meet the wonde​rful virtual specialists from around the state that we are working with to lead groups. To get started, visit the GaDOE community website, select Create an Account and follow the prompts. Navigate to the Groups section and join the groups you are most interested in. We look forward to connecting!​
