Administration > Curriculum and Instruction

The mission of the Curriculum Department is to assist in providing each student with appropriate instructional materials and strategies in order that the student may achieve proficiency and reach his/her potential in a well-rounded educational program.

To this end, each staff member within the department is committed to promote high academic expectations for every student; to offer leadership and skill in the selection and implementation of curricular materials, instructional strategies including the use of technology, effective assessment tools, and procedures for reporting and analyzing student progress; and to provide to staff members effective professional development related to each of these areas. The success of this mission is achieved through the coordination of all resources.

Members of the Curriculum Department work closely with building principals, Elementary Curriculum Specialists, Reading Specialists, Librarians, Music and Art teachers, teachers of English as a Second Language, and secondary department chairs. In addition, they collaborate with Supervisors of Special Education in the delivery of curriculum and instruction for students with special needs.
