Supplemental Guide to Differentiating the Language Arts Curriculum
The Needs Assessment was a requirement for the Keystones to Opportunity grant approval process. A team of birth to age five, elementary, middle, and high school teachers met to discuss and score our district using the scale provided by the state.

This alignment was created to ensure that all students receive the same quality education, regardless of placement. A Special Education brochure was created to offer helpful tips for differentiating the curriculum for Special Education students.
