Our Curriculum

  • All Coffeyville USD 445 curricular resources officially adopted are aligned to state standards. We make every effort to ensure a guaranteed and viable curriculum so that we leave no gaps in student understanding.

    How are resources chosen?

    Our core subject curriculums are on a renewal cycle. Six years for math and reading and as needed for other resources. The year prior to a new curriculum being adopted, curriculum directors and administrators form a curriculum adoption team. This team is made up of teachers who are grade level or team leaders, have been recommended by their principal, or have requested to be a part of the team.

    The steps that are taken to adopt a new curriculum vary, but generally include the following

    1. Identify the strengths and weaknesses of current resources. Determine top priorities to look for in a new resource.

    2. Begin speaking with colleagues in other districts and reviewing current curriculum ratings using Ed Reports or other review websites.

    3. Meet with representatives of what seems to be the top 3 - 5 options

    4. Narrow choices down to top 2-3 resources

    5. Test samples of top choices in the classroom

    6. Collect feedback from teachers

    7. Determine top choice

    8. Negotiate price and present to board of education for adoption
