The Office of Curriculum and Instruction works with administrative leaders and professional staff to design, implement and deliver a core curriculum that fulfills the district’s mission to serve each student’s unique learning requirements. The Department supports schools in both what to teach and how to teach: by providing a rigorous, standards-based curricula in all content areas and by offering ongoing professional development for teachers and administrators on critical instructional strategies that will help them address the needs of their diverse learners.
In order for all of our students to be successful, they must achieve across a broad spectrum of intellectual, social, emotional, and physical needs. We must consistently strive to strengthen our curricular programs and services, instructional strategies and assessment practices at all levels. By analyzing the cognitive and affective needs of our students, we guide them to continually seek learning opportunities that will unlock their potential talents, develop global perspectives, make reasonable, ethical and informed decisions and thereby become responsible citizens.
