The purpose of the Curriculum Department is to support all instructional leaders — teachers and administrators – in their use of research-based best practices to improve student learning.   Our three-fold commitment to these leaders is 1) to provide a clear and consistent vision, 2) to provide quality professional development opportunities, and 3) to encourage instructional strategies that engage all students in deepening their understanding of the Utah Core Standards.
