Curriculum and Instruction
The Department of Curriculum and Instruction within the Carrollton City School System provides leadership, guidance, and support for teaching and learning in grades PK-12. With this in mind, the Carrollton City School System Department of Curriculum and Instruction is instrumental in articulating the expectations of unit design as well as classroom pedagogy. Likewise, it is through detailed analysis of research-based, best practices that the Department of Curriculum and Instruction formulates systemic recommendations. Most recently, the Department of Curriculum and Instruction has focused on Understanding by Design by Jay McTighe and Grant Wiggins, Making Classroom Assessment Work by Anne Davies, How to Grade for Learning by Ken O’Connor, How to Assess Authentic Learning by Kay Burke, and How to Differentiate Instruction in the Mixed-Ability Classroom by Carol Ann Tomlinson. Through a wide-variety of book studies, professional development workshops, and data-driven decision making, the Department of Curriculum and Instruction guides the supervision and professional development of local school faculty and administration.
The Department of Curriculum and Instruction is comprised of a team of administrators from each school and representatives of system leadership who work collaboratively to ensure the delivery of effective and efficient PK-12 curricular and instructional support and is committed to providing an instructional program that supports academic achievement for all students in the Carrollton City Schools community. Through this department, as well as others, focused work occurs to further our commitment to “upholding a tradition of excellence since 1886.”
