Curriculum and Instruction
Welcome to the Department of Curriculum and Instruction!
We are proud of this community and the staff that supports its children each day. While this department works in a supervisory and support role, it plays an important function in setting a climate where children are safe, taught in a developmentally appropriate way, and challenged to learn and grow. Our philosophy is simple:
The Department of Instruction will create an environment where all teachers feel valued and supported, understand the importance of professional growth, and believe they are the single greatest factor in student achievement. The Department of Instruction will provide rigorous and engaging curriculum, strong programs, and comprehensive materials to support learning for all of our students. A staff of engaged professionals that have the support they need and believe in their ability to reach all learners will yield a premier organization and students prepared for the 21st century.
This is a challenging and humbling assignment. We are proud of the effort we put into doing it. I have served as an administrator in this district for 15 years in many buildings. I am committed to improving every aspect of what we do as we strive to create the best educational environment for our students.
As a department we have committed to systematic work to update and monitor our curriculum according the our department Curriculum Review Cycle. Click the text to the left to link to our document summarizing the components of the cycle and the timeline for review by subject.
This section is under regular redesign in order to bring you the most up-to-date information. We appreciate your patience as we try to make this the most user-friendly, useful site.
If you have particular questions regarding specific curricula, please reach out to the appropriate Curriculum Supervisor using the subject area links to the right. If you have a question for me, do not hesitate to email me or call 856-227-1400 extension 2401.
The state has recently released School Performance Reports for the district and each school. We encourage parents and community members to review those as we look to continually improve outcomes for all students.
