• Welcome to our curriculum overview! The following page is designed to provide a general understanding of when specific learning standards are experienced by students. District 60 aims to provide students with comprehensive learning opportunities to help each child learn and grow. The District designs learning experiences to meet children at their instructional level and to help children progress at a rate that supports and challenges them to reach high standards of achievement. Please note that the curriculum overview for each grade level and content area is not a comprehensive list of all resources (i.e. texts, workbooks, etc.) used in classrooms. Teachers make selections based on student interests and need to address all Illinois learning standards.
