Curriculum and Instruction Department


The Casa Grande Elementary School District offers quality educational programming, innovative instructional practices, and follows a standards-directed curriculum based upon the Arizona State standards. The Curriculum and Instruction division emphasizes Quality Curriculum, Instructional Materials Support, and Assessment.

Quality Curriculum: Casa Grande Elementary School District strives to offer our students a challenging academic program as well as opportunities for the development of social and leadership skills. Our curriculum is designed to align with the Arizona Academic Standards through grade level specific curriculum maps. The curriculum maps ensure a consistent implementation of the curriculum across all of Casa Grande Elementary District Schools as well as supporting teachers in their instructional planning, lesson development, assessment and use of core materials.   

Supplemental Material pending Board Approval

Instructional Materials Support: Casa Grande Elementary School District endeavors to provide teachers with quality materials to effectively teach.  A comprehensive process is exercised when selecting appropriate instructional materials for grade levels and/or courses. Teachers, specialists, administrators, parents, and community partners all have a significant role in the selection process.   For questions regarding specific materials adoptions, please contact the Curriculum and Instruction Director.  

Assessment: Casa Grande Elementary School District’s assessments are aligned to authentically measure student achievement. We assess major learning outcomes through a variety of assessment measures, including teacher-designed assessments, district-designed benchmark tests, and state-mandated assessments like the Terra Nova (nationally standardized achievement test) and Arizona's Instrument to Measure Standards Dual Purpose Assessment(AIMS/DPA). The Curriculum and Instruction office processes many of the assessments used and provides quality data analysis tools for teachers and administrators.
