Directive from Providence School Board regarding Student Instruction and Curriculum
(Excerpted from Strategic Direction Policy adopted September 8, 2008)
Providence will create a high-performing school district that educates all students to high standards and eliminates the achievement gap. Creating a high-performing school district requires that we redesign all of our systems to directly and effectively manage our core business of teaching and learning. We will make fundamental changes from our current loosely-coupled system of schools to a tightly-integrated high-quality school system that provides equity and access to all.
We will do things differently to meet the needs of our students. We are not satisfied with incremental improvement and must create system-wide coherence and stability that effectively supports our students, teachers, administrators, parents and school communities.
To bring about dramatic positive improvements in student outcomes and to enact the School Board’s Core Beliefs and Commitments, we have adopted a Strategic Direction that articulates an organized, coherent framework for an Aligned Instruction System. This Aligned Instruction System addresses the following key components for supporting teaching and learning in our schools: curriculum and instruction; comprehensive assessment framework; and professional development for teachers and principals.
