The CISD Curriculum Department is dedicated to the success of all students and is committed to excellence in teaching and learning. Collaborating with an incredibly talented instructional staff, the curriculum department focuses on research-based instructional best practices and works to provide a rigorous curriculum designed to ensure innovative, customized learning opportunities for all students.
In CISD, we believe each learner must have equal access to a rigorous college and career-ready curriculum. CISD uses the process of backward design to ensure the alignment of the written, taught, and assessed curriculum. The curriculum of CISD focuses on the development and deepening of understanding and the transfer of knowledge and skills through the intentional design of learning experiences that integrate content with global dispositions and require high cognitive demand.
