The goal of the Curriculum and Instruction Department is to ensure quality resources and support for school leaders and instructional personnel, including teachers and teacher assistants. Our primary goal is to ensure that quality, standards aligned instruction occurs each and every day in every classroom. We assist with this process through the following actions:
- Maintenance and updates to the NRMS Wiki Site that contains pacing guides for all content areas, as well as a plethora of curriculum resources that have been vetted by the district’s content specialists.
- Quality professional learning experiences for all professionals
- In-school support services via school support teams
Our focus areas for the 2016-2017 school year are literacy and Multi-Tiered Systems of Support.
The NRMPS literacy vision is to develop and support on-going comprehensive literacy expectations for all grades and content areas, K-12. Our goal is to build, refine, and practice the life-long literacy skills of reading, writing, speaking, listening, thinking, and creating through content and supporting projects in a concerted effort to prepare all students to be college and career ready contributing members of our democratic society.
The NRMS Multi-Tiered Systems of Support vision is threefold:
- To focus efforts to strengthen Tier 1 – Core instruction through an intensive focus on standards aligned, evidence- based instructional delivery (teaching practices that have been proven to improve student outcomes)
- To utilize universal screening data from the Reading 3D assessment, as well as the iReady diagnostic to plan strategic interventions for students performing below grade level.
- To implement research based Tier 2 and 3 intervention for our students with the most intensive needs
The school support teams will be directed by the administrative team at each school and the goals and strategies outlined in the School Improvement Plan.
Academic progress will be monitored through the utilization of school-based data throughout the school year.
