Curriculum

Moreland School District is committed to developing a strong foundation for our students to be college and career ready. With the adoption of the California Common Core Standards (CCSS), which are rigorous and embed 21st century learning skills, we are in the process of evaluating, piloting, adopting, and implementing CCSS-aligned curriculum. As we go through this process for each academic area, teachers will continue to use aligned instructional materials and leverage technology to enhance student learning.

During the 2015-16 school year, a committee of teacher leaders selected new math adoptions: Eureka Math for grades TK-5 and College Preparatory Math (CPM) for grades 6-8. Teachers have spent hours this summer learning about the new curricula and will continue this professional development throughout the year.

During the 2016-17 school year, a committee of teacher leaders piloted ELA/ELD curricula. The team selected Benchmark Advance for TK-Grade 5 and Amplify ELA+ELD for grades 6-8 to begin using in the 2017-2018 school year. Teachers will attend professional development sessions this summer to learn about the new curricula and will continue this professional development throughout the year. 
 

NGSS Adoption

Moreland School District is in the process of selecting a science curriculum that is aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). After hearing presentations from a variety of publishers, the science committee, which is comprised of teachers from all grade levels and across all school sites, selected two programs for the elementary and middle school grades to pilot. Both the elementary and middle school science committee teachers chose Discovery Education Science and StemScopes CA NGSS 3D. The committee teachers have been trying out these programs in their classrooms. If parents wish to preview the materials, please view the following links for more information:
