The Future Is Custom: How Districts Are Using Custom Curricula as a Foundation for Student Success

PCG at the 2022 AASA National Conference on Education

New whitepaper now available!

Driven by a sense of urgency to improve student outcomes and better engage their communities, districts are engaging educators, parents, and other stakeholders in new ways as they work to build curricula that are high-quality, culturally-relevant and responsive, and steeped in local context. This whitepaper explores the growth of locally-developed curriculum and spotlights the work of districts as it addresses the opportunities, challenges, and key considerations for educators, district leaders, or anyone invested in the future of K-12 education to undertake similar work in their communities.
