Curriculum

The Curriculum & Instruction Department at District 129 supports our important work with students by advancing the knowledge, understanding and professional practice in teaching and learning.

We strive to provide a viable curriculum which connects instructional methods, resources, goals and assessments—all of which help a student learn. We assist teachers in facilitating exceptional academic and social growth for all students.
