Curriculum, Instruction & Assessment

  • Quality programs for students result when curriculum, instruction and assessment are one and the same. As such, the district's academic program is built around a vertical continuum for curriculum from Kindergarten to grade 12. Continuity also exists in the monitoring of curriculum to ensure that teachers within a grade level or subject area are teaching and assessing the planned curriculum.
     
    The development of new knowledge and societal demands necessitate that curriculum development be a continuous process. Curriculum development is not complete until the curriculum is used in the classroom.
     
    The district has a process in place to bridge curriculum development and curriculum delivery in the classroom. Curriculum content is designed to achieve long-range goals for students in all domains - cognitive, social, emotional and physical - and to prepare students to function as fully contributing members of a democratic society and a competitive global economy.
