The Academic Knowledge and Skills (AKS) as developed
by the Gwinnett County Board of Education are the standards for
excellence for all students in the Gwinnett County Public Schools. They
are what teachers are to teach and students are to learn. In every
classroom, instruction and assessment are tailored so that all students
learn the AKS.

students. An intervention reading class is also available during

remediation and extension also occur daily.

approach in which the facets of reading comprehension, literature and
novel study, composition, usage and grammar, spelling, listening and
public speaking are taught within a block, but enmeshed throughout the
The Mathematics curriculum in grade six
emphasizes a broad range of topics (number concepts, estimation,
computation, patterns and functions, geometry, measurement, algebra,
statistics and probability) taught as an integrated whole. Students take

grade. Curricular goals for all students include learning to value
mathematics, becoming mathematical problem solvers, learning to
communicate mathematically, and learning to reason mathematically.
The Science curriculum in grade six covers topics in physical
science; the course of study in grade seven is life science and in
eighth grade the study is earth science. The process skills of science
are emphasized in all grade levels.

potential to increase learning time.

U = Below 70
A student receives conduct and effort grades of E (excellent), S
(satisfactory), N (needs to improve), or U (unsatisfactory). The report

As defined by the Scholastic Childrenís
Dictionary (Scholastic, Inc., 1996) to plagiarize is "to steal
and pass off the ideas or words of another as oneís own". Acts of
plagiarism include, but are not limited to, the following types of acts:
copying another personís paper
buying (or downloading for free) a research
paper from the Internet or other type of service
turning in a paper that someone else has
written for the student
paraphrasing material from a source without
giving proper credit
copying materials from a source and giving
proper credit, but leaving out the quotation marks
Plagiarism includes the new version of copying,
"cut-and-paste" from electronic sources. Students complete
research by taking notes in phrases and then organize materials and
information to suit their own needs. Students always cite the sources of
their information. Shiloh Middle provides a bibliography format for
print and non-print (electronic) sources. If a student needs to cite a
source that is not covered in the provided bibliography format, he
should consult his teacher or a media specialist.
A student who plagiarizes will receive an appropriate
consequence. Teachers may give the student a "0" on the
assignment. Parents will be notified.
Students may not use rolling book bags.
