Huron Valley Schools is excited to announce the public launch of our curriculum mapping system, Atlas.
HVS is committed to ensuring every student is provided access to high quality, rigorous, and effective instruction. Atlas will allow parents, educators, and students the ability to easily view curriculum expectations of each grade level and subject area.
This initial release of information will be focused on English and Mathematics for kindergarten through grade 12. Over the coming months, the district will continue releasing more subject areas, including Social Studies and Science.
To access this tool, click on the HVS Atlas link here. Under All Curriculum at the top of the homepage, the Browse tab allows you to search by grade level and subject area.
When selecting a course, you will find access to the following:
- Course Description
- Unit Calendar (Scope and Sequence)
- Content Expectations (Standards)
- Essential/Focus Questions
The course description is a brief overview of the course and is similar to what you will find in the course catalog. The Unit Calendar provides a general guide of the scope and sequence as to when content is taught within a course/ subject throughout the year. Content expectations give an overview of specific standards taught within each course and alignment to the State of Michigan standards.
Finally, you will find essential learning and focus questions to be covered in each unit. It is important to know that the Unit Calendar is a general guide and may vary from class to class.
This year, some teachers are making pacing adjustments due to student learning needs resulting from COVID-19. We encourage any questions related to your child’s scope and sequence be brought to the classroom teacher for clarification.
HVS continues to offer resources and tools to parents to support student learning and success. Providing transparency with course content and curriculum standards supports that effort. We will continue to add courses to Atlas in the coming months including Science, Social Studies and elective programming.
As always, if you have any questions about your child’s progress, please reach out to your child’s teacher.
