Access to Varied and Customizable Content, Curriculum and Assessments

One of the key responsibilities of school and district leaders is to ensure that the teaching staff has what it needs to teach effectively, including the right set of resources and other supports that are aligned to state standards, contain rigorous content, and address deeper learning competencies. There needs to be a strong set of curricula for all content areas, with well-aligned pedagogical aids, such as model lessons with supporting pacing guides and curriculum maps.

In addition, school and district leaders must ensure that programs, interventions, and tools are made available to address the varied needs of students from all backgrounds. This often means a variety of supports for personalizing and individualizing instruction for students from demographically different backgrounds, students with learning differences, and students who are English language learners.
