The Department of Curriculum and Instruction is committed to delivering our Winchester Public Schools mission: Learning for All….Whatever It Takes through a personalized learning approach based on a rigorous curriculum aligned to the Virginia Standards of Learning.
The Department of Curriculum and Instruction empowers and equips educators by providing effective professional development, coaching support, and modeling. As a result, our teachers are prepared to effectively engage and challenge all students.
Our Preschool - 12 educational experience prepares students to become life-ready graduates by:
- Achieving and applying appropriate academic and technical knowledge
- Attaining and demonstrating productive workplace skills, qualities, and behaviors.
- Aligning knowledge, skills, and personal interests with career opportunities.
- Building connections and value for interactions with diverse communities.
The Department of Curriculum and Instruction is organized into five offices: Elementary/Intermediate, Secondary, Special Education, English Learners, Gifted, and Personalized Learning.
