Curricular Resources

To meet the needs of our students in times of exponential change, our content leadership teams designed a set of 21st century curricular resources to supply our students with a guaranteed and viable curriculum aligned with the new Colorado Academic Standards.

As part of the SVVSD Standards-Based Curriculum Alignment project, the Department of Assessment, Curriculum, and Instruction is pleased to announce the release of our curricular resources that define what students should know and be able to do. These documents provide you with rigorous and relevant curriculum and support in the content areas of language arts, mathematics, science, social studies and elementary music.


  • To increase student achievement by focusing on what students need to know, understand, and be able to do at each grade level and how it is measured;
  • To develop and implement with fidelity and accountability a guaranteed and viable curriculum that is standards-based;
  • To promote organizational effectiveness.
