Curriculum & Instruction Overview
The Manheim Central School District is committed to providing a K-12, standards-aligned, rigorous and relevant, 21st Century curriculum for all students, in all content areas, and in all grades and courses. Using an audit and revision process, the curriculum in all subject areas is continuously improved. Learning Facilitators from each academic department engage in each of the components of the curriculum review cycle to ensure curricular alignment with the Pennsylvania Academic Standards of Achievement. In addition, the curriculum review process includes refining our local assessment plans and engaging students in research-based learning experiences that are designed to promote college and career readiness upon graduation. While the cycle provides the structure necessary to ensure an intentional focus on each step of the curriculum development process, it is still flexible and nimble in order to permit responsiveness to new initiatives and frequent changes required by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. The District’s curriculum is housed in an online tool called, C-Map, which makes it easily accessible to all educators.
