Every seven years, the Nebraska Department of Education adopts new content
area standards. This cycle was recently completed in the area of
English/Language Arts. The curriculum development process of North Platte
Public Schools follows this revision timeline. Therefore our English Language Arts
curriculum writing teams are in the process of adopting high-quality instructional
materials that align with the revised standards.
Over the next six weeks, NPPS teachers will be field-testing new
English/Language Arts 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 literature, strategies, and materials to our
students and staff. Full implementation of new resources will occur during the
2023-24 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.
