As part of our commitment to Every Learner. Future Ready., the office of teaching and learning aims for a guaranteed, viable curriculum that ensures all our students learn at high levels. We are committed to standards-aligned curriculum that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive so that all students can see themselves reflected in their school experience. Finally, we believe that teachers working with collective efficacy through professional learning communities (PLCs) will empower students to be future-ready.

Learn more here about the mission, core beliefs, instructional approach, student competencies, teacher competencies, and access and equity principles for each content and curriculum area.

Our curriculum is designed by our teachers with support from teacher leaders and school administrators through the PLC process. It is designed to support our system indicators and the academic road map.
