NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) — Teachers, curriculum specialists and other Natchez-Adams School District staff won't get much of a summer break this year as 130 of them will begin working to rewrite the district's curriculum for all grades.
The Natchez Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/YjcDn6 ) Superintendent Frederick Hill presented the Board of Trustees Thursday with a proposed curriculum-writing project that would help teachers connect educational theory and research to their classroom practices, while also working to improve student achievement.
Hill said the project was created after receiving the results of a district-wide curriculum audit and also to align the district with Common Core State Standards.
Through the Common Core State Standards, English-language arts and mathematics curriculum will be changed in Mississippi with the goal of setting clear educational standards that states can share and adopt.
