Curriculum & Courses

Common Core

The Common Core is a set of high-quality academic standards in mathematics and English language arts/literacy (ELA). These learning goals outline what a student should know and be able to do at the end of each grade. The standards were created to ensure that all students graduate from high school with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in college, career, and life, regardless of where they live.

Current Curriculum Under Review

Attention Community Members: As we begin to adopt new math curriculum for the 2025-2026 school year, we are seeking input from you! In the district office, I have placed two curricula we are considering. If you'd like, please stop into the offices, examine the texts and then complete a survey on your phone with your thoughts. You'll find the grade levels for your own children represented in the selections. QR codes with the surveys are in the offices.

Thank you!
Beth Huntley

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me directly.
Phone: 517-852-9275 ext. 2260

We want to hear community feedback for both of the programs we are considering.

You can find samples of these programs below and also in the Fuller Street and Maplewood Offices.

If possible, please review the resources and then give feedback using this Google Form.
