Curriculum and Instruction Office

Welcome to the Department of Curriculum and Instruction for Caledonia Community Schools. We consider it an honor to serve our community as we constantly seek excellence in our educational system.

Curriculum and Instruction are our core purpose and function. We take great pride in offering a rigorous educational program that will prepare students for college and career. Our classrooms are learning labs for our students as they seek to define their gifts and talents.

Caledonia curriculum has been aligned with the Grade Level Content Expectations and the High School Content Expectations developed by the State of Michigan. We continue to review our standards, resources and instructional strategies to ensure a quality educational experience for our students.

In collaboration with the Kent County Schools and Intermediate Districts and we are currently completing the development and implementation of the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics. These standards have been adopted by 45 states. This process is integrated into our professional development and pursuit of excellence. Our focus is to constantly improve instructional techniques so that we can help all students reach their personal potential.

We believe that instructional leadership is developed through research, experience and innovation. In every classroom we create and discover opportunities to grow and learn. We welcome you to Caledonia Community Schools as a partner in our journey of learning.
