The Department of Curriculum and Instruction supports teachers in continuous improvement of their knowledge and skills. Our goal is to provide a rigorous and relevant curriculum across the district. All students should have equal opportunity to have the same level of learning, and all teachers should have the tools they need to help our students achieve the learning goals.
A central team of K-12 Specialists provide support to teachers and administrators. The team facilitates groups of teachers who review standards, recommend instructional materials, and develop support material for all teachers to use. The team provides district-wide professional development, and supports school-based professional development.
These MHPS Academics pages further explain our Strategic Academic Layout, Plan and Focus. These are grouped into six main categories: STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT, ACADEMIC STRATEGIC PLAN, CURRICULUM, ASSESSMENTS, INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS & SUPPLIES, and PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT.
