Redford District and Curriculum
Residents of Redford Township will attend one of two districts: Redford Union School District No. 1 (RUSD) and South Redford School District (SRSD). Committed to rigorous core instruction, the districts adhere to the Michigan Curriculum Framework (MCF) and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Specific to these benchmarks are changes to the English language arts and mathematics curricula. Literacy in all subjects and competency with numbers are two highlights of the CCSS. Students receive challenging core instruction from primary school through graduation, to include English language arts, science, social studies, mathematics, physical education, art, and music.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Redford District Curriculum
As students advance through school, course selections become more specialized to meet academic, social, and emotional needs, in addition to preparing them for subsequent grade levels. Both RUSD and SRSD make college and career readiness a primary objective. The district also offers middle and high school students, who perform better in an environment with less structure, an alternative educational setting.
Students have opportunities to explore content through a variety of elective offerings, AP courses, and career and technical education programs. Each district serves a capacity of learners by providing students with quality special education services, traditional instruction, and innovative tools. Highlights of the SRSD are two academies within the middle and high schools. The Thurston Academic Institute (TAI) and Pierce Academic Institute (PAI) are programs within each school that provide accelerated academic training. The PAI provides students with high-school-like courses, while the TAI acts as a college preparatory school.

The school district’s music program currently has no fund, so the money will provide necessary services, such as uniform and instrument repair, music purchases, and assistance for students’ camp costs.
- South Redford Schools Accept More Students This Year - For the first time since 2011, the South Redford School District saw an increase in enrollment by approximately 100 students. The increase not only provides extra funding for the district, but it demonstrates the district’s ability to attract parents and students. The most notable was an increase in SOAR, the alternative online academy. This program’s increase means more students are staying in the district, rather than leaving or dropping out of traditional schools.

Chalk Talk: Essential Questions and Enduring Understandings
Essential questions and enduring understandings are often included on curriculum maps and guides, so what exactly are they? Essential questions are a few questions (sometimes only one) that guide a unit or topic of instruction. These essential questions reflect the “big ideas” of the unit, meaning that they focus on content of major importance. Essential questions do not just have one correct answer—they are open-ended and require students to think critically. It is more effective if the learning activities are built around the essential questions rather than vice versa. Enduring understandings are related to and derived from essential questions in that they are the main understandings students should gain from the content they are learning. Enduring understandings can help answer the essential questions. Students often have to memorize tons of facts in a given unit, but the enduring understandings portray the major takeaways that students should get from the lesson or unit. Essential questions and enduring understandings should both align with the standards.
