Curriculum and Instruction

 Monroe Public Schools Mission Statement

The mission of the Monroe Public Schools is to prepare students to be citizens in a world where they can make positive contributions to the diverse and global communities in which they learn, live, and work.

Curriculum Philosophy

Our curriculum supports the Monroe Public Schools mission by ensuring that instruction is engaging, rigorous, relevant, and inquiry based while meeting the needs of the 21st century learner. All students, upon graduation, will be college and career ready, prepared to succeed in a diverse global community.

 Curriculum and Instruction 

The Assistant Superintendent and the Director of Instruction work with principals, the K-5, and 6-12 Instructional Leaders 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 ensure that instruction is engaging, rigorous, relevant, and inquiry based while meeting the needs of the 21st century learner. Upon graduation, all students will be college and career ready, prepared to succeed in a diverse global community.

The Monroe Public Schools are committed to a comprehensive process of curriculum planning and assessment.  We foster continuous improvement of student performance as measured by the Common Core State Standards and Assessments, as well as other local, regional, national, and international standards. Monroe’s Curriculum maps include the scope and sequence of content, concepts, and skills taught in a particular discipline (or combination of disciplines, for interdisciplinary curricula), textbooks and other core materials, identified measurable student learning objectives, and the methods of assessing student performance of learning objectives.

  

Curriculum Mapping is a procedure for reviewing the operational curriculum as it is entered into an electronic database. It is based largely on the work of Heidi Hayes Jacobs in Mapping the Big Picture: Integrating Curriculum and Assessment K-12 (ASCD, 1997). Monroe Schools are using curriculum templates that display key components of the curriculum: content, skills, assessments, and essential questions. The Monroe Curriculum Mapping initiative is an on-going process.
