Curricular Improvement System (CIS)
The CURRICULAR IMPROVEMENT SYSTEM is Cascade Christian School's process to align, analyze, and enact our Educational Curricular Program in accordance to our Guiding Principles. We accomplish student-learning goals through curricular maximum impact development, implementation, analysis, and reflection.
Asking essential questions is an important aspect of this process. Grade-level horizontal teams and subject-area vertical teams will meet throughout the school year and ask these questions in the context of their curricular maximum impact.
PLAN: What do we want students to know and do? (Curricular Guide)
TEACH: How do we deliver our plan to our students? (Classroom Management, Instructional Strategies, Technology)
ASSESS: How do we know they have accomplished it? (Formal and Informal Assessment)
REFLECT: What do we do if they have not accomplished it? What do we do when they have? (Reflective Practice, Peer Coaching and Mentoring)
