Curriculum and Instruction are the foundation for successful educational experiences. District 23 utilizes a collaborative process to review state standards, current curricula and materials, instruction. Ongoing curriculum committees review feedback from parents and students, guidelines and requirements from State and Federal entities, and best practice research from the field. Teachers and Administration work together to identify gaps in our current materials and practices and make recommendations for enhancements, improvements, and curriculum adoptions.
