Curriculum Vision

Many of you may have been wondering where RCS is headed. I have been observing classes, listening to teachers, parents, and stakeholders, and studying the data.

Our curriculum and instruction vision:

-infused Catholic identity into the curriculum and instructional practices

-rigorous, standards-based educational opportunities

-individualized instruction to connect to students' passions and needs

"How do I teach?" not "What do I teach?"

We must move away from the notion that the purpose of writing curriculum is to produce a product. We must embrace the fact that curriculum review is about IMPROVING INSTRUCTION!

Our curriculum review cycle will take place in three phases.

Phase 1: Establish the Foundation

Phase 2: Curriculum Camp

Phase 3: Implementation through PLCs and Staff Development
