Curriculum Overview

In Eastpointe Community Schools, curriculum is one component of the overall instructional infrastructure.  Eastpointe Community Schools believes it is the district’s responsibility to create and maintain a vertically and horizontally aligned curriculum and assessment system that includes developing, vetting, approving, rolling out, and revising curricular units for all content areas. 
 
Eastpointe Community Schools defines curriculum as district-articulated, grade level/subject specific content that is aligned to standards and learning targets with required common assessments that use multiple modalities (performance task, content-centered, student reflection, and systems-based). 
 
District approved curriculum will include:

  • A timeline for instruction (scope and sequence);
  • Required resources;
  • Exemplary activities;
  • Instructional time allocations required daily for core content areas;
  • K-12 literacy expectations that align to balanced literacy standards; and
  • Grade level/content area common assessments. 

 
District approved curriculum will be housed in Atlas Rubicon. 
 
It is expected that the district-approved curriculum be taught with fidelity in all PreK-12 classrooms. In addition, it is expected that teachers engage in professional learning communities (PLC), focused on the Four Critical Questions of a PLC and utilize multiple measures of data to differentiate classroom instruction based on student needs.  The district will approve all Tier II and III intervention/remediation approaches and resources.  
 
All instructional strategies used to deliver the curriculum must be aligned to the district’s visions for high-quality subject-specific instruction. They must be research-based, relevant, rigorous, and contribute to the comprehensive student experience.
