Welcome.  The Goochland County Public Schools' Elementary Curriculum site is designed to provide educators and families with curricular information, documents, and resources.  Users will find local curricular documents for the four core academic areas, grade level parent resource cards, links to important Virginia Department of Education Resources, and more.  Grade level navigation can be found at the sidebar to the left.  This site was developed and is maintained by the GCPS elementary instructional team.

Instructional resources like this one are never finished.  Adjustments in state and local curriculum, refinement of instructional strategies, updates to resources, identification of division and community needs, and response to those needs ensure that this site is an ever-developing resource. 

We hope you find it helpful.
