CURRICULUM, INSTRUCTION AND ASSESSMENT



OverviewCurriculum, instruction, and assessment function in synergy to attain optimal student achievement.  Curriculum is the what students must know and be able to do.  Instruction is the teaching of essential content and skills.  Assessment is the how we know students know it and are able to do it.

NH Minimum Standards For Public School Approval require student mastery of district competencies and or graduation competencies to indicate student achievement.  Curriculum, instruction, and assessment must function in synergy to support competency based education.  Please click here for more information on competencies.

The district curriculum plan is to continue to evaluate and refine district curriculum in alignment with the NH Curriculum Frameworks and 21st Century Skills Initiatives.  This work will include:

  1. Curriculum alignment and instructional unit development to encompass the standards. 
  2. Integration of science, social studies, and technology education into literacy instruction. 
  3. Integration of 21st century skills throughout the curriculum.  21st century skills include information, media, and technology; learning and innovation; and life and career.
  4. Integration of 21st century themes throughout the curriculum.  21st century themes include global awareness; financial, economic, business and entrepreneurial literacy; civic literacy; health literacy; and environmental literacy.

Please reference the Epping School District Reform Model " 21st Century Student Outcomes for College, Career, and Life Ready Students" for more information on the curriculum goals.

District curriculum is governed by School Board Policy IGA Curriculum Development and IGD Curriculum Adoption.
