Curriculum and Instruction
Thank you for visiting the The Community Schools of Frankfort Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment page. The Community Schools of Frankfort uses the Indiana Academic College and Career Readiness standards as the basis for all grade-level curriculum development. These standards indicate minimum expectations of mastery for all grades and can be found by clicking on the Indiana State Standards link located on this page.
CSF uses a variety of resources for curriculum development, and routinely updates and adjusts these resources to meet the needs of our students. Committees of teachers, administrators, and other stakeholders meet to select resources to use for instruction. Some of them are listed below.
Scholastic Literacy (K-5)
McGraw-Hill’s StudySync (ELA 6-12)
Ready Math (k-8)
Carnegie Math (9-12)
Number Corner (k-2)
CSF believes in a balanced assessment system, and relies upon both locally-created assessments and nationally-normed assessments to create an accurate picture of each learner. In grades k-5, students are given the Scholastic Next Steps in Guided Reading Assessment a minimum of three times/year in order to track their reading behaviors over time. All students take the NWEA MAP assessment in grades k-12 to measure what students know, what they are ready to learn next, and how to best set and chart goals for growth over time, in math and reading. Students also have a series of mandated state assessments that they take in the spring of each school year. More detailed information will be provided on this page soon.
Please contact Jennifer Walton, Director of Student Achievement, with any questions or comments.
