Office of Curriculum and Instruction
Welcome to the Montville Township Curriculum and Instruction Page!
Here in the Montville Township Public Schools, we are committed to providing the children in our schools a robust and rigorous curriculum that lends itself to varied instructional approaches, which are continuously revised and revisited by informative assessments. Through differentiation, our teachers can bring the curriculum to every student, regardless of differences in students’ prior knowledge, personal interests, and academic readiness. We further support our children by providing special education and enrichment support services as required by law and good teaching. By providing opportunities for teachers to articulate within and among schools across the district, we can only promote better instruction for our children.
In the last five years, the Department of Curriculum and Instruction has grown in instructional supervisors, online curricular resources, district course offerings, and digital learning opportunities for both students and staff. Our experienced staff of directors and instructional supervisors work in collaboration with each other and district principals to ensure that our students at every grade level get the best educational experience Montville Township has to offer.
We are proud that we are able to bring in new and/or enhance existing instructional programs each year. Some highlights for the 2017-2018 school year include a new elementary science program, Inspire Science, dedicated Spanish teachers for grades 2 through 5, a revised Gifted and Talented Program, and new culture classes offered in French, Italian, and Spanish at the high school. In addition, the high school program of studies now includes AP Computer Science Principles.
With our Board of Education supporting a one to one Chromebook initiative at the high school, our teachers and students are afforded more opportunities to use these devices in the classroom on a daily basis. The Chromebooks are a useful tool to help students unlock the curriculum and master the standards in new and innovative ways. To help support this ongoing initiative the district has purchased a number of online digital tools over the last several years that align with the standards and curriculum. Some of these include Hapara, Learning A-Z, Raz Kids, Imagine Learning, ALEKS, and i-Ready.
Throughout the school year, we will be adding resources and helpful links to the Curriculum and Instruction page, so please visit us periodically for updates.
I look forward to another fabulous school year!
