The HISD Board of Trustees met last night to discuss, among other issues, the implementation of the CSCOPE curriculum, not lessons, in order to align across the district what is taught and improve the students’ mastery of subjects so they can better transition to the next grade.
HISD Director for Curriculum Marjetta Spriggs explained how teachers are trained for the curriculum.
Former Director of Curriculum for Canyon ISD Kim Beck Buchanan, who offers training for teachers, was on hand to talk about the previous success of the curriculum and expressed how CSCOPE met teacher evaluation authority Dr. Robert Marzano’s student achievment standards . . . .
Board President J-T Langley passed along to Ms. Buchanan his favorable view of using the CSCOPE curriculum document . . . .
The board will take a look at taking action on curriculum at their next meeting on August 15th.
