Department Overview

  • The goal of the Curriculum and Instruction Department is to ensure quality resources and support for school leaders and instructional personnel.  Our primary goal is to ensure that high quality instruction occurs in every classroom, every day.  We assist through the following actions:

    • Guidance for school leaders and instructional staff in order to ensure that the vital components of teaching and learning occur for every student.  (NRMPS Instructional Framework)
    • Provision of an abundance of curriculum resources that have been vetted by the district’s educational specialists and instructional coaches.
    • Quality professional learning experiences for all professionals.
    • In-school support services via educational specialists, instructional coaches, and technology coaches.


    Our focus for the 2018-2019 school year is the continued Implementation of the NRMPS Instructional Framework.

     

    NRMPS Instructional Framework

     

    The NRMPS Instructional Framework signals a clear focus on the evidence-based practices of effective teaching.  Grounded in research, the framework components can be used to guide lesson design and delivery and foster educator reflection and continuous improvement of professional practice.

    Academic progress will be monitored through the utilization of school-based data, throughout the school year.
