Curriculum includes the content and subject matter that focuses the work of the classroom. It describes what students will know and be able to do, and outlines of the best practices that teachers use to assure student learning.
Our elementary handbooks outline the curriculum objectives of each grade level and are organized by subject matter. These handbooks also explain how students are evaluated on progress reports. Please refer to these handbooks throughout the school year when you have questions about expectations and requirements.
