Curriculum & Instruction
We believe that every child deserves access to high-quality standards-aligned teaching and learning in every classroom. Our Curriculum and Instruction team works to design and support relevant and standards-aligned curricula that improve all students’ outcomes by collaborating with educators, leaders, and the community.
We recognize that excellence requires a commitment to equity and to identifying and addressing practices, policies, and institutional barriers, including institutional racism, that perpetuate opportunity/achievement gaps. We are working proactively to acknowledge racial and cultural biases and eliminate instructional structures and practices that affect student learning and achievement. The curriculum and instruction department commits to this work as we strive to achieve the following vision:
All students are building agency to meet or exceed grade level expectations by engaging in differentiated, standards-aligned learning within equitable environments that attend to students’ social-emotional needs.
