Curriculum & Instruction
The primary mission of Curriculum & Instruction is to support the schools in ensuring the success of every student in Lemoore. To fulfill that mission, services, resources and information for students, parents, staff, and the community are regularly provided. The focus of our work is to oversee curriculum, instruction, staff development, assessment, and categorical programs for the six schools in the Lemoore Union Elementary School District. Leadership is provided in the development of curriculum and implementation of content standards and assessments. The Curriculum & Instruction Department also helps schools, parents and staff understand, implement, and comply with reforms, statutes, regulations and guidelines.
Our goal is to work collaboratively with all of our school staff members. The district staff development program is administered by the Curriculum Department. Content includes literacy, mathematics, differentiating instruction, using technology and instructional strategies such as cooperative learning. Staff development is planned so that the needs of teachers at different levels of expertise are met which, in turn, helps to best support all students.LUESD recently adopted a new math curriculum adoption Go Math! from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. In English Language Arts, the new curriculum adoptions include Wonders (K-5) and Study Sync (6-8) from McGraw-Hill and Big Day (TK) from Houghton Miffflin Harcourt.
