Pacing Calendars and Curriculum Maps

In an effort to establish open communication about student expectations between parents and teacher, Turlock Unified School District K-6 pacing calendars and 7-12 curriculum maps are available on our website for easy access. These pacing calendars and curriculum maps are guidelines about what teachers are expected to teach and what students are expected to learn.  Additionally, they delineate a reasonable amount of time for in-depth teaching and assessment.  With common pacing calendars and curriculum maps throughout the District, students who transfer from school to school or teacher to teacher are able to maintain consistency in learning subject matter.  

Everything students do during instructional time provides teachers with an opportunity for monitoring their progress.  Informal classroom observations and instructional materials-embedded assessments are some of the many tools available to teachers with which to measure student progress toward mastery.  

It’s incumbent for teachers to be instructional leaders in their classrooms.  We fully support each in making important instructional decisions daily about WHAT to teach (wise curriculum & instructional material choices based on student needs), HOW to teach it (effective instructional strategies to deliver the most powerful first dose instruction) and WHY (analyzing assessment data to make sound instructional decisions).  Our goal is to help each student reach their individual potential and highest achievements!
