Welcome to the Department of Curriculum and Instruction 9-12. Our focus and purpose is to work directly with the high schools to ensure every student is prepared for both college and career; not one or the other. By providing a standards-based instructional program and raising the expectations for all students, we continually strive to support the high schools in order to meet three overarching goals set forth by our Board and Superintendent.
- Increase Graduation Rates
- Increase the number of students graduating with A-G completion
- Increase the number of students participating in post-secondary educational options.
The Department of Curriculum and Instruction 9-12 works directly with high school principals, assistant principals, and teachers as part of our five year strategic plan to ensure every student is prepared for life after high school. This work includes:
- Curriculum Alignment and identification of Essential Standards for all core courses
- Teacher created district-wide, quarterly benchmarks and common, formative assessments
- District and school site Professional Learning Communities
- Protocols for examining student data/work to inform instruction
- Instructional strategies to support the success of all learners
- Leadership training and building capacity amongst site administrators and teacher leaders
