Classroom instruction is based on the expectations identified through Florida’s B.E.S.T (Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking) Standards. Classroom instruction is supported with the use of curriculum maps and Standards Focus Boards in all academic areas. The curriculum maps are guidelines for teachers that identify benchmarks for each subject and are correlated to the curriculum and textbooks available to all students.
It is the expectation that all lesson plans and daily instruction are aligned to the B.E.S.T benchmarks and follow the pacing guide set forth by our district. This provides teachers with the ability to check progress towards mastery by completing required district assessments and to use this data to remediate or enrich students.
