Curriculum and Instruction

The office of the Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction ensures that the curriculum and instruction provided by the district assists students to achieve the educational goals outlined by the Board of Education, the State of Connecticut, and relevant legislation. Toward that end, the Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction works with the District Language Arts and Math Coordinators and school-based administrators to guide district-wide work on the development, implementation, and improvement of curriculum, instruction, assessment, and professional development in grades K-12. As district curriculum leaders, we are committed to providing an educational environment in which all students discover and achieve their maximum potential in preparation for productive, meaningful lives and responsible citizenship.  Our talented and caring education staff is committed to excellence and equity for all students, creating safe, supportive environments in which children can thrive.

District Vision
