The best teaching ~ the highest level of learning drives the work of our office. Linking the talents of administrators, teachers, parents, and students, we develop curriculum, assess achievement, and use technology to design and expand learning for the future. If it’s about quality education, it’s happening at TPS!
Tecumseh Public Schools K-12 curriculum is effectively aligned to state model curriculum recommendations. A strong academic program has been created and works as the foundation of the well-rounded curriculum. Courses provide challenge and enrichment to satisfy diverse student needs and assist students in discovering and developing their individual goals in life. All curriculum content areas are assessed in an ongoing, annual process to remain as current as possible and to ensure the effective delivery of teaching and learning. An interdisciplinary curriculum in which all content areas integrate with one another is a common goal. The ultimate outcome is to create multiple learning environments that connect schooling to real life and the world of work applications.
The local curriculum defines the outcomes to be achieved by all students and is based on the district’s educational mission and the locally developed goals and objectives for students. Tecumseh Public Schools has determined our own instructional programs for implementing the core curriculum, including the identification of courses and units of study, syllabus, time allocation, and instructional support materials. All of our course content is aligned to the Common Core State Standards, Michigan Grade Level Expectations, and Michigan High School Content Expectations. In addition, we have started the process of aligning our Science curriculum to the Next Generation Science Standards.
