Mission of the Office of Curriculum and Education:
The mission of the Office of Curriculum and Education is to research, design and implement rigorous and engaging curricula aligned to state and national standards, supported by instructional best practices and on-going professional development for the consistent growth of teachers and staff.
The K-12 WSSD curriculum is developed through collaborative practices with teachers and administration in vertically articulated team, seeking research-based resources and approaches to learning that meet the expectations of the WSSD community and post-graduate pursuits. The Framework for Curriculum Review guides subject areas through four phases: Review, Development, Implementation and Monitoring.
The goal of a successful framework process is to develop and sustain quality curricular design and instructional practices that connect both teaching and learning to the overall achievement of students.
