Elevate evidence-based curriculum across the district

“Evidence-based curriculum” may feel like a buzzword to some, but to me, it’s a way of making sure that the curriculum that our students receive is backed by research. It’s a way of checking that the publishers' claims about how their curriculum impacts student outcomes are true, not just the product of huge marketing budgets that generate sales. In the 2023 school year, Natick Public Schools will spend $1.2M on curriculum materials. As a district, we want to ensure that those funds are going towards curriculum materials and interventions that have rigorous, current research conducted with students from a  wide variety of economic and racial backgrounds as well as learning styles. A review of our elementary reading curriculum would be a good place to start
