The goal of the EASD is to provide each student with a high quality core curriculum in English language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, and world languages; and many stimulating learning experiences in physical education/health, art, music, technology and business courses. Therefore, our district is committed to preparing all students to achieve at the highest levels to meet the challenges of the 21st Century.
Every year, we strive to ensure that each curricular area has identified standards for learning that guide classroom instruction and assessment. These standards articulate the skills, knowledge and understandings we believe all students need in order to become educated citizens. Standards represent the essential understandings in the subject area discipline. Additionally, we continually use data from classroom assessment and state assessments to drive our instruction and monitor student performance towards these standards.
Through a dynamic curriculum renewal process, the core curriculum of the EASD is revised regularly to ensure that the curriculum is aligned with identified standards and designed to meet the needs of learners in the 21st Century.
Moreover, it is essential to have support systems so all of our students are healthy, safe, supported, engaged and challenged. Therefore, we have a commitment to professional development for administrators and teachers so we can continually improve knowledge and skills as educators.
