Curriculum, Instruction & Assessment are fundamental components of an effective education system. In order to meet the diverse learning needs of students and the requirements of the Connecticut Core Standards and Common Core of Teaching, it is imperative that schools have tools and support to plan, develop and implement standards-based curriculum, assessment, and instruction.

EASTCONN provides educators with professional learning and support to develop high-quality Curriculum, Assessment and Instruction that is aligned to the current Connecticut standards. Those include the Connecticut Core Standards in English Language Arts and Mathematics, the recently adopted Social Studies Frameworks and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

During the 2017-2018 school year, we are engaging educators throughout the region to ensure they have current resources for all of these standards. To get more information about any of these projects, use the contact information below:
