Rigorous Curriculum Design Information for Parents & GuardiansTop of Page
GSCS has implemented a three-year process to
create curriculum guides using the Rigorous Curriculum Design (RCD) model. RCD
is the district’s redesigned approach to delivering and monitoring instruction
that directly affects student achievement, while cultivating “in-house”
ownership of the curricula. With this model, teachers are able to focus on
performance data to align lessons to meet their students’ needs, and
administrators will be engaged in RCD data monitoring to ensure full
implementation. GSCS currently offers curriculum guides for English Language Arts,
Math and Science, and will add additional content areas over the next two
years. RCD provides rigorous and relevant learning opportunities to improve
student engagement in the classrooms, with the goal of preparing them for
college, career and lifelong success. Please click here to read more about RCD.
