Curriculum and Instruction Department


Curriculum and Instruction

The Curriculum and Instruction Department is responsible for all functions related to content curriculum for students including textbooks, professional development for certificated employees, Gifted and Talented Programs, School Accountability Report Cards, oversight of No Child Left Behind (NCLB) requirements, and state accountability measures (API).



Curriculum and Content Standards

The content standards for all curricular areas are adopted by the BUSD Board of Trustees as frameworks are updated following the schedule developed by the State Board of Education. Links to the content standards for the various subject areas are provided in the Quick Links on the right side of this page.  BUSD is currently transitioning to the California Common Core Standards.  Links to these standards are also included in the Quick Links.  All standards are also available on the website for the State Department of Education.
