The Curriculum Department provides leadership in the development of instructional resources for use by teachers as they carry out instruction with students.

Curriculum Developers collaborate with teachers to develop courses, improve and refine curriculum and assessments and anchor to the standards. Additionally, Developers stay abreast of new developments and instructional approaches in their subject area, including instructional technology and innovative instructional strategies and materials.

Instructional Technology Curriculum Leaders (ITCLs) are assigned to each school to provide training and support in the implementation of curriculum and instructional technology programs, including Brightspace, OneNote, SmartBoards,  Aspen GradeBook, and other electronic resources.


Brightspace is an interactive learning management system where entire courses are placed online with resources such as discussion forums, course content, quizzes, surveys and much, much more.

One-to-One Laptop Program

One-to-One computing offers many benefits to our modern day classroom and learner. The laptop will allow students to access learning materials and engage in real-time inquiry as their questions arise.
