The word curriculum refers to the things students are expected to know and learn to do, the instructional strategies and other activities teachers use to help students learn, and the learning materials, including textbooks, teachers use with students. All curriculum in Lincoln Public Schools is multicultural.
The curriculum in Lincoln Public Schools provides students with important knowledge and skills necessary for success in school, preparation for post high school education and entering the work world. As in any growing, changing organization, curriculum is periodically reviewed for the purpose of keeping it current and relevant to the needs of students and society.
The learning characteristics of students are considered when making curriculum decisions. Curriculum is developed to provide options for the wide variety of student learning abilities.
This site also includes information on several programs currently in operation in the district. These programs are listed separately because they have implications for curriculum.
