The primary goal of the Department is to work in support of the school system's Master Plan Goal of increased student achievement. This is accomplished by:

  • Development of curriculum for comprehensive and specialty programs.
  • Review and identification of instructional materials to support curriculum.
  • Identification of teaching strategies most appropriate to deliver curriculum effectively.
  • Provide information to parents and community members related to curriculum implementation and assessment.
  • Provide a comprehensive curriculum Scope and Sequence and curriculum guides which clearly delineate essential learner outcomes for all students.
  • Assess, monitor, refine, and evaluate the implementation of an effective instructional program aligned with the curriculum.
  • Provide meaningful staff development through modeling, demonstrating, and presenting in-service programs that reflect research-based "best practices."
  • Assist schools and teachers to identify, and acquire human and material resources to support student learning.
