Curriculum Access

This provides our parents with an opportunity to browse our curriculum in all areas. It has been helpful to teachers, tutors, and parents needing to access our curriculum.  As you browse individual courses, you will be able to access curriculum maps and unit designs. The maps and unit designs are broad outlines of what students need to know and be able to do. Maps are collaboratively created by our teachers, who spend many hours reaching consensus about the curriculum that is essential for our students. As a result, the content of our maps include and often exceed state standards.Revisions are made when needed to meet the needs of students and curricular requirements. We anticipate that some units will change over the course of time as teachers make necessary modifications. Please also be aware that some units may be taught in a different sequence due to shared resources and/or a quarterly or semester rotation.

We hope that you find the site useful as you learn more about what is taught in the King Philip Regional School District. Questions, comments, or feedback should be directed to the King Philip Regional Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment, Dr. Susan Gilson gilsons@kingphilip.org or your child’s building principal.

District Curriculum Accommodation Plan (DCAP)

Massachusetts General Laws require the adoption and implementation of a District Curriculum Accommodation Plan (DCAP). This plan is intended to guide administrators and staff in ensuring that all possible efforts are made to meet the needs of all students in the general education setting. The DCAP is aimed at assisting staff in providing differentiated learning experiences to ensure that students can improve learning through the use of various teaching modalities. The DCAP guidance document describes the accommodations, instructional supports, and interventions that are provided for students who are experiencing difficulty mastering content.
