Curriculum & Instruction

Ensuring the Best in Learning and Instruction

A high quality curriculum is at the heart of a high-quality education. Curriculum refers to the core components, or learning standards, of the subject matter and the materials used to teach those standards. Learning standards define what all students need to know and be able to do at each grade level. Throughout their K-12 education, students progress through the curriculum of a variety of subjects comprising the K-12 course of study.

Our Curriculum Department:

  • Researches and assists staff in selecting textbooks and instructional materials
  • Implements curriculum that is aligned with state standards
  • Develops information systems that record, measure and assess student learning
  • Acts as a resource for current research and best practices and programs
  • Coordinates professional development
  • Consults with educators on district, state and federal requirements including the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA), Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) and the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)
