Curriculum & Instruction Overview

  • The Division of Curriculum & Instruction includes the Departments of Assessment, Curriculum, Instruction, and Special Education.  Within this Division, curriculum, assessments, and instructional strategies are designed and developed for the 81,000+ students who compose the student body of AACPS. 

    Additionally, the Department of Special Education is poised to assess, assist, and support all of our students with disabilities through the use of specialized curriculum, equipment, learning settings, and other appropriate resources.
