Putnam’s curriculum documents contain the standards by which we define the skills, knowledge and understandings we believe all students need in order to become well-educated citizens. Based on the Common Core of State Standards (CCSS), there are clear outcomes that provide teachers, students, parents and the community with the basis of what students should know and be able to do upon their graduation. Standards include the content, knowledge and skills that students need in order to develop the understanding of concepts necessary to transfer their skills to solve problems in their everyday life. Assessments, curriculum and instruction are designed to be responsive to student needs and are aligned with the standards. Assessment results drive curriculum and instruction. This priority focuses on accomplishing these efforts and continually monitoring, evaluating and refining our curriculum doscuments and subsequent instruction.
