Curriculum & Instruction

In Lombard District 44, our desired outcome is for students to be emotionally secure, academically prepared thought-leaders who are invested, engaged, and connected to their learning experience.
The Curriculum and Instruction Department seeks to foster creativity, encourages innovation and promotes individual excellence. Our students must be leaders, not just learners, and that is accomplished by providing opportunities for choice and voice in their school experience.  We offer activities rooted in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math to give our students opportunities to problem-solve and build upon their unique wonderings.  Through initiatives such as whole school social-emotional lessons, increased Tier 1 social-emotional opportunities and greater utilization of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), our students are able to develop emotional security and a true sense of empathy.
Equally, it is critical that we reach the head and heart of every child, giving them tools to navigate the world around them as well as the academic skills that will serve as a strong foundation for their ongoing learning. We want our students to be physically and emotionally healthy individuals who have great awareness of their strengths and a keen understanding of how to overcome various challenges.
