Teaching & Learning Department


 
The Teaching & Learning Department supports teachers in their continuous improvement of their knowledge and skills.  Our support is guided by Ohio’s New Learning Standards which is the foundation for the development and improvement of the curriculum maps and guides.  The department also uses the Youngstown City School’s instructional framework to increase rigor and student engagement in all subjects

Each curriculum supervisor is an expert in his/her field of study. The expectation for the supervisors is to provide support to the teachers and administrators. Supervisors share current best practices with teachers and administrators through district-wide professional development.  Additional professional development is provided based upon the specific needs of students and teachers. 

 

Programs/frameworks such as Literacy Collaborative, Read 180, System 44, and Carnegie Math are implemented at each building which are comprehensive programs to support the literacy and math needs of our students. These programs align with Ohio’s New Learning Standards and integrate the most current teaching practices. Each program embraces personalized, student-centered instruction which has proven to significantly increase learning.
