Curriculum

  • The Fort Smith Public Schools Curriculum Department supports the Fort Smith Public School mission statement, as well as the AR State Curriculum Standards.  This department ensures that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach proficiency on challenging academic standards and state assessments by designing "roadmaps" for teaching the state standards in each subject area (see links to ADE standards below.)

    The district content maps and pacing guides are developed through a collaborative effort with district stakeholders (teachers, administrators, etc.).  The maps are designed around essential standards which are vertically and horizontally aligned.
