Welcome to the Big Horn County School District #2 Curriculum - Assessment - Instruction Home Page
 

In Big Horn County School District #2 defines processes and expectations related to teaching and learning. The purpose of this work is to establish consistent practices that adhere to state statute, district policy, and research-based practices. The work of curriculum, assessment, and instruction is critical towards meeting this goal from the District Strategic Plan:

 

Big Horn County School District #2 will establish and maintain a well-aligned, guaranteed, rigorous, and viable K-12 curriculum based on the Wyoming Content and Performance Standards.

 

What does it mean?
 
  • Well-Aligned: The system of curriculum with all components that are clearly aligned to the Wyoming Content and Performance Standards.
  • Guaranteed: We have identified the essential skills and knowledge necessary for all students to learn at a grade level or in a course. The guarantee is that we will provide opportunity for all students to learn these essentials.
  • Rigorous: A rigorous curriculum is one in which each student is expected to learn at high levels in a learning environment that maximizes their given potential.
  • Viable: Viability is a question of time. A viable curriculum is one that can be taught in the available time during the school year.

MTSS Framework: To best meet the needs of the criteria as defined in the goal above, we use a robust multi-tiered system of support (MTSS). Through this framework, we define curriculum, assessment, and instruction for three levels.

 

  • Tier 1: Core Curriculum - for all
  • Tier 2: Provides supplemental support or enrichment
  • Tier 3: Provides intensive support or enrichment

PLC Process: In our district, we operate using a Professional Learning Community (PLC) process. The components of curriculum design are developed to address the key questions of the PLC:

  • Curriculum: What do we want students to learn?
  • Assessment: How we will know if they have learned?
  • Instruction: Materials, methods, strategies to deliver the core curriculum and answer these questions:- How will we respond if they don't learn?- How will we respond if they already know it?
 
This webpage is designed to give a basic overview of the processes we use for curriculum, assessment, and instruction. For more detail, refer to the District Guide for Curriculum, Assessment, and Instruction. If you have any questions regarding this information please call or email me.
