All of the curriculum that DASD teaches is based on the Pennsylvania State Standards, which are developed though the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
We then hire highly qualified administrators and teachers to develop curriculum. The curriculum is a very involved process that involves teachers and administrators before it comes to the school board for approval.
In the DASD curriculum we follow science and human growth and development lessons are very scripted and developmentally appropriate.
As far as history is concerned, we need to teach factual history and teachers shouldn’t be infusing their political beliefs.
In English, kids needs to be exposed to many different kinds of literature and perspectives.
As educators, we also hope that parents are having discussions at home to enhance the learning.
