K-12 Curriculum and Instruction
Duluth Public Schools uses a variety of curriculum and instructional resources to support student learning. Curriculum focus on the "what" is being taught (Outcomes, Standards, Benchmarks) while instruction focus on the "how", or the way teachers will help students meet these goals. In Minnesota, state standards for curricular areas are written by state committees and approved by legislative vote on a regular review and adoption basis. Local standards such as World Language, Health and Industrial Tech, and Family and Consumer Science, are determined by local committees and community members based on National Standards.
To support the standards, resources are adopted through a detailed process and professional development is designed help guide instruction and learning for our students. Each content area is lead by a specialist, and a team works within that content area to review and implement the curriculum and instruction for their area.
