Mission Statement: Teachers have high expectations for all Students

Vision Statement

  • All lessons are driven by on-grade-level standards

  • All students have access to grade-level content by teachers providing just-in-time scaffolds

  • During a lesson, teachers continually collect and monitor student responses to
    formative assessments and adjust instruction in order to be inclusive and equitable

  • Increase student participation and metacognition by limiting consecutive
    teacher-led/lecture style instruction to roughly 10 minutes per lesson

Curriculum Review Manual 
Everett Public Schools seeks to adopt curriculum through collaborative, data-driven processes with multiple stakeholders and perspectives.  We believe in the constant reflection of curriculum materials through a robust, six year cycle during which homegrown and purchased materials are evaluated and tested against multiple measures.  

We believe in research and expertise when adopting, revising, and changing curriculum.  We also believe in providing our Educators with the curricular resources necessary to increase time on learning and to maximize teacher preparation time.  We are constantly investigating ways to make lesson planning more efficient for our teachers.  This may require additional investments in professional development with curriculum providers, extension materials, teacher manuals, virtual accounts, and shared lesson plans.
