Curriculum Resources

We serve over 2,500 students with a variety of thoughts, beliefs, perspectives, and experiences. We seek to inspire every student every day with quality instruction that promotes creativity, growth, character, individual strengths and a lifelong love of learning.

District course design and core instructional materials will be regularly reviewed to ensure their ongoing alignment with state law, teaching and learning standards, and research-based best practices. All students will receive high quality core instruction and, as appropriate, strategic and intensive intervention supports matched to student needs.

OSPI develops state learning standards. Adopted materials have to align with state standards. 
 

Cultural Competency in Education 

Students have different academic outcomes and needs based on their human identities: ability or disability, socio-economic status, homelessness, race, ethnicity, gender or gender identity, English  language acquisition, and many other factors.

A new WA State law (SB 5044), requires school staff, educators and board members to receive training on cultural competency, diversity, equity or inclusion (CCDEI).

The Anacortes School District has not adopted a special framework for CCDEI. We are partnering with the Acosta Educational Partnership to provide staff training throughout the year. 

CCDEI is not Critical Race Theory (CRT). Critical Race Theory is 
a legal framework typically used in higher education settings. It is not a curriculum, and is not being taught in our schools. 

For more information, please see the district's adopted Equity Policy
