Curriculum Development Guide

Career and technical educators are held accountable for student performance through the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA), National Occupational Competency Testing Institute (NOCTI) and Keystone assessment requirements; therefore, federal, state and local resources are focused on improving student performance through planned strategies that demonstrate results.

Research has proven that consistent teacher effort to utilize proven strategies will make significant improvements in student performance. A series of small curriculum planning and instructional delivery changes made by a teacher over time will result in more focused instruction, more engaged students and improved performance.​
