Dear Burrell Families & Community,
Burrell School District is currently in a three-year cycle of curriculum review and writing that is embedded within our educators’ professional learning (2021-2022, 2022-2023, & 2023-2024). Our goal is to publish our K-12 curriculum in all departments on the Burrell School District website by the end of the 2023-2024 school year. Although curriculum work is an ongoing process, we are working to prioritize the non-negotiable knowledge, skills, and dispositions we want to ensure students are learning that are aligned to the PA Core Standards and newly released STEELS (Science, Technology & Engineering, and Environmental Literacy & Sustainability) Standards for each of our courses.
Here are a few links to resources within the SAS (Standards Aligned System) Portal that our educators are referencing when writing curriculum.
On the left - click on the grade and subject you want to view, then scroll down and click on the arrows beside each big idea, which will expand it to view the Essential Question and a brief summary of each.
