Gifted High School Program

The Bellevue School District is committed to obtaining, developing, and delivering high quality curriculum in all subject areas that supports each of our students’ unique needs. Working collaboratively, we strive to develop a curriculum that raises the achievement of all students, narrows the gap between the highest and lowest performing students, and eliminates the racial predictability and disproportionality of which student groups occupy the highest and lowest achievement categories.

The expertise, insight, and creativity of our teachers are essential to the development and delivery of curriculum that meets these diverse needs. The teachers, administrators, and curriculum department share an interest in ensuring that course goals, unit goals, objectives, lessons, assessments, and materials are developed in a collaborative manner to continually improve and maintain the integrity of a high quality district curriculum

One-to-One Laptop Program

One-to-One computing offers many benefits to our modern day classroom and learner. The laptop will allow students to access learning materials and engage in real-time inquiry as their questions arise.

Curriculum Adoption

Curriculum is evaluated, adapted and developed on a continuing basis with reviews taking place at least once every seven years. Adoption committees, consisting of district staff and community members, are formed to review curriculum.

Supporting the Classroom

Curriculum Developers

Curriculum Developers collaborate with teachers to develop courses, improve and refine curriculum and assessments and anchor to the standards. Additionally, Developers stay abreast of new developments and instructional approaches in their subject area, including instructional technology and innovative instructional strategies and materials.

ITCLs

Instructional Technology Curriculum Leaders (ITCLs) are assigned to each school to provide training and support strong instruction and implementation of curriculum and technology programs. With devices in all secondary students hands and more devices in elementary school the ITCL helps with shifts in teaching. This including online resources (Dreambox, Amplify, Discovery Education), OneNote, SmartBoards, Synergy GradeBook, and other electronic resources.

Research Technology Specialists (RTS)

Research Technology Specialists collaborate with each classroom teacher working to integrate digital literacy skills and research strategies along with appropriate technology applications in assignments, reports, and generally within their curriculum. Both teacher and RTS work to empower students’ confidence in applying knowledge enterprise as strategic researchers accessing and synthesizing information. The RTS works with students and teachers to model through pedagogy culturally responsive and equitable teaching practices, access to information, and digital ethics contributing to our learning society as responsible digital citizens.
