Hempfield School District is committed to providing a K-12, standards-aligned, rigorous and relevant, 21st Century curriculum for all students, in all content areas, and in all grades and courses.
This curriculum is kept current and is continuously improved through the implementation of our School Board-approved Curriculum Audit and Revision Cycle. Over a six-year period of time, members of our 15 academic departments engage in each of the components of the cycle to ensure curricular alignment with the Pennsylvania Academic Standards of Achievement
, to refine our local assessment plans, and to engage students in research-based learning experiences designed to promote college and career readiness.
While the cycle provides a structure to ensure an intentional focus on each step of the curriculum development process, it is still flexible and nimble in order to permit responsiveness to new initiatives and frequent changes required by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
