Elementary Curriculum Maps
ELA curriculum maps are all under construction. You do however have access to all four units overview. Remember each unit is in correlation with ARC's structure. Inside each unit are three cycles that match with quarter dates. The overview includes proficiency scales, k/1 phonics, word study and phonological awareness. We have many scheduled meetings for completion and are on our way to be unified,and purposeful as a district.
Math maps are online in staff resources via our district website. If you have not received the overview of maps, please reach out to your building principal or myself email@example.com.
