Curriculum, Instruction, & Assessment

CIA Logo Color
As a part of "the best little school district in Texas" our department exists to assist in cultivating the district vision of preparing "each student to become a critical thinker and an ethical, productive citizen in the pursuit of excellence...". Our department strives to provide strong curricula, coupled with rigorous learning opportunities and assessments, to improve the achievement of each student while meeting their individual needs. Thank you for visiting our page today. We sincerely hope that the information provided helps you understand the curriculum and instruction that our Stafford students are receiving.

Written Curriculum
Written curriculum includes curriculum guides and lesson plans. Written curriculum materials are available online through the District's curriculum management system.

Taught Curriculum
Teachers follow the courses of study and instructional materials provided by the District, the essential knowledge and skills for each subject mandated by the state, and the scope and sequence developed by curriculum writers and reviewed by other teachers.

Tested Curriculum
Teacher-made tests, district assessments and state assessments are congruent with what is written and taught. Teachers and administrators use test results to assess the status of individual student achievement, to identify general achievement trends of various groups of students, and to modify curriculum and/or instruction as warranted by assessment results.
