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 supports this belief by implementing high-quality and culturally responsive curriculum and assessments in help accelerate learning for all students.


    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 D65 students engage in differentiated and rigorous learning tasks in affirming environments that build student independence and agency and result in all students meeting or exceeding grade-level expectations.
