Curriculum and Instruction
The Department of Curriculum and Instruction is responsible for ACPS 2020 Goal 1: Academic Excellence and Educational Equity. Our vision is to ensure every ACPS student is prepared and equipped for success in college, work, and life in a global society. We will accomplish this by using a curriculum that challenges, engages, and allows every student to experience a rigorous, relevant, and engaging learning environment that responds to his or her interests and challenges. We will also provide an inclusive organizational culture in which every student will develop habits and attitudes that reflect the principles of cultural inclusiveness, civic responsibility, and ethical and respectful behavior.
The Six Focus Areas for Curriculum and Instruction for SY 2020 are:
- Quality Instruction;
- Empowering Leaders;
- Curriculum Resource Development and Implementation;
- Best Instructional Practices; and
- Monitoring Feedback.
