Core Courses Curriculum Maps

Curriculum Mapping is the process used to sequence learning, align resources, and designate clear outcomes for each of the core courses in Carmel Clay Schools. 

Teachers, administrators, and district Curriculum Directors conduct Curriculum Mapping to align with Academic Standards set by the Indiana Department of Education.  

Curriculum Maps are regularly reviewed and revised based on teacher feedback and student outcome as part of the Program Adoption Cycle.
