A formal curriculum guide captures learning goals, unit objectives, technology integration, and assessment methods for each grade level and discipline taught in the Trumbull Public Schools. For each new course of study, a written curriculum guide is developed and piloted in coordination with the district’s policy on curriculum development. For ongoing courses of study, written curriculum guides are revised in a regular evaluative process. Beginning in the 2015-16 school year, new and revised curriculum guides are posted here shortly after their approval by the Board of Education. Prior curriculum guides may be accessed by contacting the Office of the Assistant Superintendent at 203-452-4336.
