CURRICULUM and INSTRUCTION
The Pottstown School District has written curriculum to state and national standards. These content standards clearly identify what is to be taught. The state assessment (PSSA) measures achievement of the content standards in reading, writing, and mathematics.
Performance, as well as content standards, are necessary components of a standards-based system. The District is developing quarterly assessments to more clearly define the level of learning that is expected at each grade level (elementary) and within each course (Middle School and High School).
Currently, the staff is incorporating the state defined "assessment anchors" (PSSA-Assessment Anchors) into the curriculum, organizing the content into more focused units, and developing quarterly assessments to provide feedback to students and parents regarding student achievement toward curricular priorities.
