The work of the Curriculum & Instruction Department is directed by the district’s mission: “To educate and to inspire a community of lifelong learners.” Our aim is to enhance educational consistency across all Haverford schools with high standards for all, and to create a seamless educational experience for students - kindergarten through twelfth grade.
The Curriculum & Instruction team provides leadership, expertise, and support in the development, implementation, revision and assessment of all district instructional programs. The Department works collaboratively with principals, teachers, assistants, and others to meet the district’s educational goals. The team analyzes and reports on the results of our schools’ PA and national assessments, directs curriculum writing initiatives, and supports schools with local benchmark assessments. The Curriculum & Instruction team also researches and identifies the finest instructional practices.Throughout the year, we design professional development opportunities that include examining the existing curriculum and training our teachers in research-based instructional methods.
