Curriculum Strands

The Connecticut State Department of Education supports its school districts with the development of rigorous and relevant curriculum, PK-12. Curricular development takes place at the district level through meaningful, ongoing, data-informed discussions involving districtwide educators.

Supporting district-based curriculum development, the state provides resources to include frameworks with standards and grade-level expectations, templates for curriculum, and sample lessons and assessments. State-provided professional development, supplementary resources, and Bureau of Teaching and Learning staff are also available to assist. Additionally, the state's six regional educational service centers provide public schools support and access to curriculum and program development and professional development of teachers and staff.

Sterling Community School participates in regional program and curriculum development through its alliance with the Eastconn Regional Educational Service Center located in Hampton, Connecticut. Highly-trained and skilled consultants from Eastconn provide direct services to the administrators and staff of the Sterling Community School in the context of specific long-term school improvement grants or contract opportunities, curriculum council memberships, and professional development activities.
