Curriculum & Instruction

Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum

All LUHSD students deserve access to a carefully-planned and challenging education that prepares them for college and/or career goals. To achieve this, LUHSD schools function as Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) where collaborative teacher teams meet regularly to create, plan, and deliver a guaranteed and viable curriculum.
A guaranteed and viable curriculum is a combination of learning targets, common assessments, and plans for intervention. While differences among LUHSD schools mean PLC work looks very different at each site, teachers at each school are working very hard to design and maintain the following components of a Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum:
  • Guaranteed Standards
  • Learning targets for each guaranteed standard
  • Common assessments at the target level and the standard level
  • Pacing guides
  • Procedures for gathering and discussing student data
  • Plans for intervention
