Curriculum Letter

Every seven years, the Nebraska Department of Education adopts new content

area standards. This cycle was recently completed in the area of Math. The

curriculum development process of North Platte Public Schools follows this

revision timeline. Therefore, our math curriculum writing teams are in the process

of adopting high-quality instructional materials that align with the revised


At various times throughout this semester, NPPS teachers will be field-testing

new math materials. All instruction is aligned to Nebraska State Standards;

however, with new materials, some of the work completed in class may look

different than in the past. We want to ensure that our students have the

opportunity to experience new and enhanced teaching and learning practices.

We are excited to provide new strategies and materials to our students and staff.

Full implementation of new resources will occur during the 2024-25 school year.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact the Director of

Elementary Teaching & Learning, Lyndsey Douglas, or the Director of Secondary

Teaching & Learning, Vikki Carlson, at The McKinley Education Center.
