When we speak about curriculum in the school setting, we focus on what students are asked to learn.
At each grade level of the Trumbull Public School system and for each discipline of learning exists a formal curriculum guide, a document that captures learning goals, unit objectives, technology integration, and assessment methods for that focus of learning. Curriculum guides are regularly evaluated for alignment to relevant state and national standards, for adherence to best practices in curriculum development, and based on analysis of student work products.
The formal curriculum at any grade level and in any discipline is transformed every day into an enacted curriculum by the hundreds of teaching professionals in the Trumbull Public Schools. Feedback from their work, and from other constituencies in the Trumbull Public Schools community, is integrated into the ongoing curriculum renewal process.
