    The above links provides a mid-year update on the progress and instructional priorities of the Department of Curriculum & Instruction so far during the 2015-2016 school year.
     

     
    The goal for 2017-18 is to continue to develop or identify clear, consistent, coherent and well-articulated curriculums that are implemented uniformly and equitably across all schools in the Freeport School District. These curriculums will continue to be driven by the national standards, and will reflect the skills and habits of mind needed for 21st century learners to be globally competitive.

    The Department of Curriculum and Instruction will continue to focus on aligning the Instructional System. The elements of a Standard’s Based Instructional System includes: research based, valid and reliable assessments, safety nets, high quality instruction, instructional materials, technology, and ongoing research on the new national standards. Alignment of these elements are essential in order to continue to see student growth and to stabilize the curriculums across all content areas. The Department of Curriculum and Instruction will continue to focus on providing teachers with high quality and focused professional learning.

    During 2017-2018, we will continue to build on the curriculum initiatives from 2016-17. We will continue to implement 21st century teaching and learning practices in an effort to prepare our students to be globally competitive. We will also implement the new Schoolwide Reading Curriculum in grades K-8 and roll out the new Bridges Math Curriculum for grades K-5. As a school system, we will continue to delve deeper into data analysis to make the best educational decisions to ensure that our students are growing academically and socially. All curriculum initiatives will continue to be aligned with the district’s instructional priorities and the strategic plan.

    Lastly, the Department of Curriculum and Instruction will continue to provide the Board of Education, parents and community with regular updates regarding our instructional programs, curriculum, and assessment efforts.
