  • In the summer of 2006 teams of teachers using feedback from previous curriculum guides, plus delta feedback, the NCSCOS, and years of experience at using language arts guides met for the purpose of developing a language arts instruction guide that would provide the best guide possible for the continuous improvement of instruction in Iredell-Statesville Schools. The area Executive Directors and related support areas were responsible for leading lead teachers and classroom teachers through this process. Similar teams met in math, writing, science and EOC and Honors courses with the same processes and charges for improvement of instruction. The degree to which the work has been accomplished is in direct correlation with the needs expressed at each level. (Ex: Elementary is language arts, math, science. High school is all core EOC courses).
