Teaching and Curriculum
Professional educators help children achieve personal and academic excellence


This year, four committees composed of teachers, specialists, administrators, parents, and community members are meeting as part of our ongoing curriculum materials review and adoption process. Information about the work of these committees can be found on the 2015-16 Curriculum Review and Adoption page.
Technology tools and resources help students prepare for college, the global workplace and for personal success. A series of videos shows how teachers use those tools in different schools and different levels throughout the district.

Curriculum, standards and assessment shape the learning experience for students in our district. The Teaching and Learning Framework creates a student-centered learning environment that allows students a guaranteed and viable curriculum.
Reviewing and selection of materials is an ongoing process. Each year, committees of parents, community members, administrators, and teachers who are subject matter experts review standards, teaching practices and materials to teach with. Our goal is to provide the most up-to-date, research based and appropriate materials for children.
Students and teachers alike have many technology tools available in the classrooms and libraries of our schools. When appropriately used the educational process is deeply enhanced by the use of technology.
Common Core State Standards provide detail about what students should know and be able to do for English language arts and mathematics. In other subjects, Grade Level Expectations (GLEs) provide detail about what students should know and be able to do by grade level. GLEs are aligned from kindergarten through grade 10 – so that parents, students and educators can see how skills and knowledge build from year to year. Grade level expectations are being developed for each content area.
Power Standards help teachers focus and prioritize what is most important for students to know and be able to do in the time available for teaching and learning. Of the state Grade Level Expectations (GLEs), Power Standards are the ones that best represent the key skills, concepts and processes mastered at a given grade level. Power Standards create the framework for teaching and learning.
