Urbana City Schools Curriculum & Instruction


Junior High & High School- 7:35 am to 2:35 pm

Elementaries- 8:40 am to 3:25 pm

The major focus of Curriculum and Instruction is to offer a curriculum that is academically rich, student-centered, and diverse, recognizing the contributions from all the shareholders of the Urbana City Schools. Academically stimulating curriculum inspires children to realize their full potential. Bringing together standards-based educational objectives, rich and relevant content, best instructional practices, and authentic evaluative techniques for all subjects covered in every grade level provides a curriculum that promotes high expectations for teachers and for students.

It is the district's goal to provide a research-based curriculum and the tools necessary for every teacher to build students' awareness and confidence in their own abilities to be successful and lifelong learners. Together, we will create an educational community that focuses on empowering all students in their journeys to become successful, motivated learners.

Education is the foundation of a successful society, and quality, challenging curriculum is the foundation of education. Therefore, all members of the Urbana educational community will share in the responsibility of meeting the educational needs of all students.

The menu offers you access to assessment information, district curriculum forms and documents, instructional resources, professional development opportunities, and more.
