Excellence Through Equity Projects

Curriculum Revamp

Why is this important?

We cannot close the achievement gap without these core systems, and we have to build these systems through a lens of culturally and linguistically responsive practice.

Project Description

As the core work of Strategic Initiatives 1a, 1b and 6a, we are undertaking a complete revision of our instructional infrastructure. Our new curriculum will be aligned to standards, supportive of our common instructional model, and aligned to best practices in culturally responsive teaching pedagogy
