School Bus Roadeo

Every school day our buses transport the most precious cargo – our students to and from school. The annual "Bus Roadeo" competition tests driving and safety skills. Congratulations drivers!

CCGPS Middle Grades Mathematics

Mathematics 6th - 8th Grade

The Pickens County School District provides a mathematics curriculum for all students, kindergarten through twelfth grade. Mathematics in the District is based on state standards at each grade level and/or course. As implemented by the teachers, the District's Standards reflect the increasingly rigorous proficiencies that students are expected to accomplish and demonstrate as they progress through school. These proficiencies include understanding of mathematical concepts, competence in problem-solving, ability to make connections among mathematical ideas and other areas of knowledge, articulacy in communication via mathematical symbols and conventional language, adeptness in mathematical reasoning, skill in the mathematical analysis of data, and mastery of basic computation skills.


According to the National Council of Mathematics Teachers, teachers should assume that students bring to the classroom a diversity of mathematical understanding and backgrounds that can be tapped to enhance learning for all students (Donovan & Bransford, 2005). Therefore, classroom experiences that build mathematical communities to solve problems, communicate reasoning, and make sense of mathematics are key to high expectations for all.

Holding high expectations means giving all students access not only to challenging tasks but also to challenging courses and curricula (Stiff, Johnson, & Akos, 2011; Tate, 2005). This does not necessarily mean that courses are difficult or accelerated but does mean that they consistently make problem solving the focus for all students. High expectations for all students in mathematical reasoning, sense making, and communication enable students to learn to identify assumptions, develop arguments, and make connections within mathematical topics and to other contexts and disciplines.

Assessment is a crucial component of the curriculum. The Criterion-Referenced Competency Test (CRCT) measures student achievement of the mathematics CCGPS in elementary and middle school. The CRCT is the promotional exam in math for grades five and eight as well as a valued indicator of a student's success on the mathematics in high school. The End of Course Tests (EOCT) gauge student competency of mathematics courses in middle and high school.
