Regina-TeutschRegina Teutsch

The Office of Curriculum and Instruction is one facet under the Department of Teaching and Learning.  Along with, the Offices of Special Education and State & Federal Programs we are committed to providing the students of Warren with curriculum and instruction that builds core academic knowledge and complex thinking skills.  Our PK-12 curriculum follows Ohio’s New Learning Standards in each content area.  Our teachers, supported by the ELA and Math Coordinators and School Improvement Supervisors developed new units, aligned materials, and created assessments aligned to the new standards and state assessments.  Through the Coordinators, School Improvement Supervisors, and math and reading coaches we continue to plan and prepare our staff to meet the rigorous demands of Ohio’s New Learning Standards which will be measured through a comprehensive assessment system.

As we strive for high standards for all so that our students achieve at high levels across all disciplines, the Office of Curriculum and Instruction focus our efforts in the following areas:

  • Implementation of curriculum that meets expectation of Ohio’s New Learning Standards
  • Use of Research-Based Instructional “Best Practice” Strategies
  • Develop of a system of interventions to meet the needs of all students
  • Continuous monitoring of our progress towards district goals outlined in the OIP (Ohio Improvement Process) Plan
  • Data-Driven Decision Making

These goals will be supported through:

  • Research-based curriculums in Math (MCP K-8) and ELA (Literacy Collaborative through Ohio State University grades K-5) supported by our Math and ELA coaches
  • Continual refinement of units and alignment of resources
  • Integration of literacy skills in all content areas
  • Technology to enhance instruction and support student learning and achievement
