Curriculum and Instruction

The Ashland School District is committed to equity and excellence for all students in a welcoming, supportive and inclusive environment.  We address the needs of the whole child and provide authentic curricula for relevant and rigorous learning opportunities for all students. The Ashland School District adopts and follows curriculum aligned to the common core standards set by the Oregon Department of Education. Textbooks and other learning materials are chosen to maximize student learning and growth. Curricula are selected on a cycle set by the Oregon Department of Education, though this may be delayed, and are purchased and/or adopted as set in Oregon statute.  A multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) for both academic and social emotional learning is implemented for continuous improvement.
