Curriculum & Instruction

The Curriculum and Instruction Department is dedicated to providing a Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum guide for parents and students, as well as additional resources. In addition, we guide and support Instructional Coaches and teachers in implementing strategies necessary for our students to learn.

A Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum (GVC) is a mechanism through which all students have an equal opportunity (time and access) to learn rigorous standards. They ensure content alignment from one grade level to the next, with pacing guides helping identify when each standard is addressed in the curriculum. These guides help support educators with standards-based planning, which, when paired with research-based instructional strategies from the KCK Model of Instruction, promotes equity. This gives all children an equal opportunity to learn rigorous, essential content. 

The Curriculum and Instruction Department is located within the Instructional Resource Center on the first floor of the Central Office and Training Center. You can reach us at 913.279.2289.
