Curriculum Alignment and Adoption


During a curriculum materials adoption  process, the Seattle Public Schools adoption committees engage our diverse communities in order to ensure the public is aware of an upcoming adoption and to gather feedback about both materials under review and general goals for the adoption.

An aligned curriculum is a coherent and consistent progression of content, instruction and assessment within and across a course of study. In an aligned system, common rigorous expectations for student learning in any one grade level are consistent across the district, grade level expectations build on the prior year’s work and feed into the next year, and teachers have the materials and training to teach the content to their students.
