Curriculum and Instruction

The mission of the Office of Instruction staff is to enrich learning for the staff and students of South Milwaukee.  We strive to support curricular expectations and character education by: 

  • Offering rigorous and relevant curriculum
  • Developing and fostering best practices in 21st Century instruction
  • Creating and evaluating assessments that give specific and timely feedback to our learners 

Currently, the Office of Instruction is involved in assessing, aligning and refining the curriculum to meet the demands of the national standards known as the Common Core.  Our work is being done amidst the backdrop of the Response to Intervention framework, acknowledging the academic and behavioral components of learning.  It is our commitment to provide ongoing professional development for our staff to ensure that as a district, we remain on the cutting edge of teaching and learning.  

We recognize the importance of community engagement and are mindful of the district's commitment to cost effectiveness.
