Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment

Our schools are constantly monitoring and trying to identify ways to improve.  We must find ways to include our students, parents, teachers, community and business leaders in these conversations.

Coming soon, a district instructional protocol.  In-other-words, what should we see happening in every Gallatin County Public School classroom.  We will be facilitating discussions and providing opportunities for everyone to have a voice in defining what instructional equity should look like in Gallatin County Public Schools.  Students should have the same opportunities to receive high quality instruction focused on standards in all grades and all classrooms.

Also coming soon, the profile of a Gallatin County Graduate.  What does our community expect a Gallatin County Public School graduate to know and be able to do when leaving our system?  "Content matters, skills matter more and motivation matters most," Tony Wagner, a globally recognized expert in education.  So what content should students know, what skills should they possess and what should be their motivation?  This has to be a true community effort.  This may define how we can be accountable to our community.
