Teaching and Learning

Welcome to the Office of Teaching & Learning

Our department provides curriculum and instruction support for grades K-12, as well as professional development for all staff in the school district. As such, we work collaboratively with the administrators and staff in the schools, as well as other district-level offices. The Office of Teaching & Learning works to ensure that the curriculum is aligned to the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks, that the curriculum and learning expectations of students are aligned vertically so students are well-prepared for each grade in school, as well as their many options after high school, and that faculty and staff have the resources and training that they need to bring engaging lessons to all of our students.

The links on the right side of this page will lead you to some useful resources. In addition, please feel free to contact our office, or the principals of any of the schools, for more specific information.
