Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment

Skyler LaBombard, Director of Teaching and Learning, works with central office personnel, school principals, and teacher leaders of each grade or content area to review and update curriculum, resources, and materials that teachers use to help students achieve learning targets, identify and implement reliable assessment tools and practices, and provide training and support for staff.

Teaching and Learning in the Bennington Rutland Supervisory Union is supported by the following beliefs:

  • Flexible Learning Environments support the needs and aspirations of all learners.

  • Collaboration between teachers and with students supports learning for all.

  • Teachers should be designers of learning, rather than deliverers of knowledge.

Major areas of focus for the 2019-2020 school year will include professional development for instructional staff on proficiency based learning, flexible learning pathways for students, and collaborative practices.

Curriculum, instruction, and assessment for students in Bennington Rutland Supervisory Union will be aligned with the Common Core State Standards, Next Generation Science Standards & Vermont Content Area Graduation Proficiencies and Performance Indicators.
