Curriculum Materials

 

 

 

Canyons School District implements a coherent instructional framework known as our MTSS Framework to ensure that students receive high-quality instruction every day.  The resources and evidence-based practices outlined in the framework support educators in teaching state standards using common, district-adopted curriculum and district-developed instructional guides that include resources for teaching CSD instructional priorities as well as additional teaching resources. 

Instructional program coherence refers to a common instructional framework consisting of curriculum, instructional strategies, and assessment for the pursuit of common goals and the organizational and resourcing procedures that support its sustained use.  The coherence of an instructional program matters for both students and teachers.

  • Students achieve more in schools with more coherent instructional programs (Newmann, Smith, Allensworth, & Bryk, 2001).
  • Teachers develop stronger professional communities when they have a common approach to teaching and learning (Bryk, Sebring, Allensworth, Luppescu, & Easton, 2010).

Curriculum and standards are adopted simultaneously when possible.  A tentative timeline for adopting standards and curriculum is outlined in the table below. Details about the annual curriculum adoption process and current curriculum resources can be explored using the menu bar on the right.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
