Curriculum Review Cycle
A currciculum review cycle ensures the continuous improvement of MCPS. Teachers in a Professional Learning Community commit to continuous learning about best, research-based practices while being open to trying new different approaches to enhance their effectiveness (Eaker & Keating, 2015). In total, teachers are committed to improving student learning by improving their own learning.
MTSS is defined as "the practice of providing high-quality instruction and interventions matched to student need, monitoring progress frequently to make decisions about changes in instruction or goals, and applying child response data to important educational decisions" (Batsche et al., 2005). MCPS has joined OPI in their state-wide Multi-Tiered Systems of Support initiative and are in the process of implementing MTSS district-wide.
