The mission of the Norfolk Public School, in partnership with families and the community, is to educate all students to be competent, confident, thoughtful, responsible and contributing members of society.

A Board of Education goal is to “Design and implement rigorous, standards based, aligned, and engaging instruction in academics and the arts that allows all students to achieve at high levels, develop their interests and talents, and express their creativity.”

Curriculum Development

The curriculum development process is based on the Board of Education goal and is collaborative and recursive. Teachers, instructional support staff and administration design curriculum based on the Connecticut State Standards in each content area. Standards are unpacked systematically to identify what students are expected to know and be able to do. Units of study are developed by grouping relevant standards together and identifying materials, resources and instructional tasks that facilitate student learning. This creates a learning  journey for the year in each content area that builds in complexity based on previously learned skills and strategies. Various assessment tools are developed for each unit of study to identify what each student has learned and what he/she needs to learn next. 

The development and delivery of curriculum includes

  • Standards - what we expect students to learn;

  • Assessment - how students demonstrate learning;

  • Content - scope and sequence of what we teach;

  • Instruction - the methods and tasks used to facilitate student learning;

  • Reflection - ongoing analysis of student performance; and

  • Adjustment - curriculum that is continuously refined and improved.
