Curriculum Revision and Adoption

Group of High School students

The Catalina Foothills School District offers quality educational programming for approximately 5,200 students. Our programs are evaluated and our curriculum is revised on a rotating basis.

The Associate Superintendent facilitates a curriculum revision committee within a given content area to provide a formal and comprehensive process for which all planned courses are revised and updated. The goal of each revision process is to design system-wide K-12 educational programming that enables all students to learn at challenging levels and develop into 21st century globally competitive students. New standards and content for Human Growth and Development were adopted last year for grades 4-9. Currently, Visual and Performing Arts is under review and will go to the governing board for consideration of approval in spring 2017.

The CFSD curriculum is articulated from kindergarten through high school and aligns with the Arizona Academic Standards.

Board approved course content and student learning expectations for CFSD curricula can be found in the Academics menu of this website. Select the program of study (elementary, middle school, high school). CFSD does not offer a distance learning program.

60 Day Public Review of Instructional Materials

Textbooks and supplementary materials are evaluated and adopted as part of each curriculum revision process. A 60-day preview period provides an opportunity for the community to review proposed curriculum resources before the governing board formally adopts them for implementation. Administrators and teachers will ensure that parents have adequate access to information about curriculum and instruction in their schools. There are no instructional materials available for public review at this time.

The link below provides a list of core textbooks/resources used in the Catalina Foothills School District.
