Curriculum & Instruction
Why the need?
The latest demographic data from the U.S. Census Bureau and Anchorage School District demonstrate the changes in the ethnicity of Anchorage’s population and underscore the district’s commitment to culturally responsive education.
As population trends continue, the district expects to make further strides in hiring employees of non-white ethnicities. Other benchmarks in the district’s Culturally Responsive Education Plan include helping students appreciate current and historical events from multiple perspectives, and accommodating multiple world views and values in daily instruction. More individualized approaches to curriculum, discipline, assessments and student engagement are also part of the plan.
