The Curriculum Leadership Council (CLC) at TPS researches, plans, implements, monitors, and evaluates the district’s K-12 curriculum. In accordance with the Michigan Curriculum Framework (MCF) and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), the CLC has designed a curriculum that prepares students for sequential and developmentally appropriate learning. The curriculum provides rigorous core academic study, while offering many electives options. The district’s emphasis on college and career readiness meets guidelines of the Michigan Department of Education (MDOE) and the CCSS.

Chalk Talk: How to Help Kids Focus
Technology has simplified our lives, and with it, cluttered our attention spans. While some may argue that multi-tasking is a 21st century skill, others counter that focusing on one task is just as important. As attention and focus wane in this digital age, there are a few skills parents and teachers can help children sharpen. Teaching and talking about attention is important. Starting with toddlers, show children how to focus on small details in music, art, and everyday activities. Ask children to point out blue cars while riding in the car or have them identity certain musical instruments in songs. Make sure to model for children. By focusing together and paying attention to children, parents and teachers can demonstrate the importance of engaging with one another, free from distractions. Provide children with technology-free spaces.
