Curriculum and Instruction

The district's curriculum defines what students should know and be able to do in each course, based on state and national standards and frameworks.  The district is working diligently to improve K-12 articulation, align district practice with state expectations, including the Common Core State Standards, and provide students with a sound instructional program that will equip students with the knowledge and experiences, necessary to be successful in the 21st century.
