  • Accountability

  • Adopted Curriculum

    Adopted Curriculum

    Curriculum adoption is one of the most important processes that a school district goes through. While it is mandated by the state for every classroom to have adopted curriculum, we believe that implementation and buy in from the teachers can make or break usage. We believe that it is vital that our process is thorough, research based and is supported by stakeholders.
