Curriculum

The DOE is obligated to provide educators in core subjects with appropriate curriculum aligned with the Common Core Learning Standards. Curriculum is defined as 1) a list of content and topics; 2) scope and sequence; and 3) a list of what students are expected both to know and be able to do after studying each topic.

If the DOE fails to provide this curriculum, a grievance can be filed.

If a teacher is asked to write curriculum, the teacher must be given sufficient time during the workday to do it or be paid for after-school work.

Teachers may volunteer to help develop new curricula (if they teach themed programs, course subjects, or elective courses, for example).
