The Department of Curriculum and Instruction will provide a rigorous and relevant curriculum, professional development for the instruction of that curriculum, assessments that provide evidence of successful performance and targeted interventions that teachers can use for providing students with additional academic support.
We believe students learn best when they are actively engaged with rigorous and relevant lessons that are taught and assessed by highly qualified, expert, and caring teachers. The curricula are driven by Standards-based learning outcomes and measured by authentic assessments that will further inform instruction through its design to explore big ideas, essential questions, and promote enduring understandings.
Technology is also integrated throughout the curricula to promote 21st Century thinking and learning to help students solve real-life complex problems.
Together, we seek to prepare each and every student as a college- and career-ready graduate.
