Curriculum and Instruction

Curriculum development is an on-going process. The Carlynton School District recognizes the need for continuous development, review and revision of the district's curricula in order to appropriately align our programs to the Pennsylvania Core Standards and increase student achievement. The District recognizes its responsibility for the continuous development, assessment and improvement of the educational program of the schools. To this end, the curriculum is evaluated, developed and modified on a continuing basis and in accordance with a plan for curriculum improvement, based on the Pennsylvania Standards, Assessment and Accountability Systems and student achievement data.

The Carlynton School District defines curriculum as a series of planned instruction that is coordinated, articulated and implemented to result in achievement of specific knowledge and skills, and application of such knowledge by all students. Through the process of curriculum mapping, our curriculum is being refined and developed to match the Pennsylvania State Standards and the Common Core Standards and to prepare our students to effectively function within a global society.

The curriculum serves all learners. It includes essential lessons and structure so all children can learn and be able to grow in the areas of language arts, mathematics, sciences, social studies, health, safety, physical education and the arts. It supports exceptional children - those with disabilities, the highly-able and English language learners. It defines the educational purposes that the district seeks to attain and describes the educational experiences, the instructional materials and procedures, and the assessments that are provided to achieve these purposes.

Our on-going work with curriculum and data are crucial components of our efforts to continually strive for excellence within the Carlynton School District. We are dedicated to providing a program of distinction that enables all students to reach their highest potential so they will lead us successfully and responsibly into the future.
