Deputy Superintendent of Curriculum and Learning
Grand Rapids Public Schools
The Academic Plan articulates a clear and well-defined focus on student learning based on College Career Readiness standards. It is not about new work, rather a continuance of effort based education with the Principles of Learning, Common Core Standards, SIOP, RTI, PBIS, and current district and state assessments. It also incorporates input from teacher leaders, principals, curriculum specialists, A&E, and others. The Academic Plan determines professional development for the current year, including the summer.
