Did R-7 start the most current curriculum review process because of the Common Core State Standards?

No. R-7 has always had a curriculum review and revision process. In 2010, the district committed to an initiative initially focusing on balancing the use of assessments in the classroom. It quickly grew into a comprehensive instructional initiative with four major components: curriculum, assessments, instruction, and student ownership of their learning.   The current curriculum review process began in 2011 and spanned 72 courses from 13 subject areas. All curricular areas are addressed and included English language arts and mathematics. Subsequently another phase of courses is under review and revision.
