The district’s Assistant Superintendent for Learning heads all aspects of teaching and learning, including the design and implementation of the curriculum, instruction, and assessment; professional development for the staff; and the adoption and pursuing of academic grants, programs, and initiatives. The district’s mission is to instill a curriculum that is appropriately challenging, engaging, and which fosters the development of 21st century skills in students.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hamilton District Curriculum
The elementary curriculum focuses on the development of mathematical problem-solving and literacy skills. Phonics, sight word recognition, and reading are emphasized so that students are able to use these skills in all their subjects. In math, students work on numerical operations, pattern recognition, shape recognition, and quantitative information. They are expected to be able to describe their basic mathematical thinking through short answer questions as well. By middle school, students will be reading more analytically and focusing on math topics like geometry and algebra.
The high school offers a Diversified Learning Program that allows students to “expand their learning beyond the four walls of a traditional classroom.” This program is a semester in length and allows for such learning opportunities as college-level coursework, independent studies, internships, and long-distance learning. Doing so means that the district’s students are prepared to take on the challenges of life and work in the modern world. Students who participate in this program must be independent and responsible and will have to follow many course expectations.

Chalk Talk: What Do Paraprofessionals Do?
Paraprofessionals are trained individuals who assist teachers--particularly special education teachers--in working with students or on tasks. Paraprofessionals may work one-on-one with students or with small groups of children. They serve an important role because they can provide extra help to students who need it or can allow teachers to better divide their time to small groups of students. Paraprofessionals may act as classroom aides who are assigned a specific student with severe behavioral and/or academic issues and accompany that student around the school. The paraprofessional must make sure the student is on-task and prepared to learn. Paraprofessionals are typically not certified to teach but often have college experience and Associate's degrees.
