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 spent hours  learning about the new curricula and will continued this professional development throughout the year.  If you'd like to learn more about our math program, please click on the link: TK-8 Math Curriculum page. 

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 attended professional development sessions to learn about the new curricula and continued this professional development throughout the year. 
 

During the 2018-19 school year, a committee of teacher leaders piloted NGSS aligned curriculum.  The team selected STEMscopes for grades TK-8.  Teachers will begin implementation in the 2019-20 school year.  To learn more about our new science curriculum visit https://stemscopes.com/state/ca/

Middle School Mathematics Course Pathways 2019-20

On August 2, 2010, the California Dept. of Education voted unanimously to adopt new standards for both Mathematics and English Language Arts. Educational standards describe what students should know and be able to do in each grade. In anticipation of the changing math standards, middle school math teacher leaders from EDS and MMS worked with math teacher leaders from Campbell Union High School District in the spring of 2013, to develop our course content and outlines. All math classes have new course titles as indicated below. Algebra and Geometry standards are now taught throughout grades 6-12. As of 2014-15, they are no longer offered as stand-alone courses because of the full integration of common core standards. Our courses and curriculum will be in alignment with the Campbell High School District so that there will be clear pathways from 8th grade to high school.

Middle School Pathway Footnotes: 

1 Students enrolled in Math 6A (Applied) are taught 6th grade level concepts at an application level. 

2 Starting in the 7th grade, Math C (Compacted) courses are offered to students. These courses are offered as a two-year block so that the compacted pathway, “ Math 7C and Math 8C”, allows the student to complete the first year of high school math by the end of the 8th grade.
