Flint Community Schools Office of Academics New Curriculum


We are thrilled to share some exciting news representing a significant step forward in our commitment to providing a world-class education for all our scholars. Thanks to the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds, Flint Community Schools has embarked on a remarkable journey of curriculum transformation.

Curriculum Overhaul

Over the past year, we have diligently worked on a comprehensive curriculum overhaul. This transformation encompasses all core subjects: English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies, as well as a variety of electives.

Connecting with Current Events

One key advantage of having a new curriculum is the ability to connect our scholars with current events. In a rapidly changing world, our education must remain relevant and reflective of the times. The new curriculum empowers our educators to integrate the latest information and trends into their teaching, ensuring our scholars are well-prepared to navigate the complexities of today's world.

Technology Integration for Enhanced Learning

Meaningful integration of technology is another crucial aspect of our curriculum adoption. In today's digital age, technology is an invaluable tool for teaching and learning. It provides our scholars with an additional pathway to explore and understand the world, offering opportunities for interactive, multimedia-rich educational experiences that enhance engagement and comprehension.

What Does This Mean for Our Scholars?

The impact of this curriculum transformation on our scholars is immense. All of the adopted programs prioritize a culturally responsive and inclusive learning experience. Print and digital resources include stories from diverse and traditionally underrepresented groups, ensuring that every scholar can see themselves reflected in their learning materials. This inclusivity fosters an environment where all scholars feel valued and heard.

Furthermore, our new curriculum places a strong emphasis on inquiry-based learning. This approach invites students to identify questions and use critical thinking to solve problems. It enhances academic skills and nurtures a mindset of curiosity and exploration that will serve our scholars well throughout their lives.

Our dedicated educators play a pivotal role in this transformation by supporting scholars in developing social and emotional competencies. They create a safe and supportive environment that fosters emotional intelligence, resilience, and interpersonal skills. Simultaneously, our teachers hold high expectations for all scholars, believing in their potential and guiding them toward academic excellence.
