At West Ottawa Public Schools, we define curriculum as the “what.” Our curriculum represents what we expect students to know and be able to do. Instruction is the “how.” We are committed to ensuring high levels of learning for every student. We support student learning and differentiate instruction based on student needs. Our practices are grounded in both the science of teaching, through the use of effective evidence-based instructional practices, and the art of teaching, through the use of student-centered innovative and promising practices.
