Curriculum and instruction in the Gardner Edgerton School District is grounded in research, aligned with state and national standards, and continually being strengthened by the creative talents and expertise of our teachers.

USD 231's plan to continually improve achievement for all students, and to eliminate the achievement gap, includes the implementation of a K-12 articulated curriculum, along with evidence of State of the Art Instruction in all classrooms for framing the learning environment.

The District curricula are structured around essential questions, disciplinary understandings, student performances of understanding, and on-going assessments.
