Curriculum and Instruction
The Curriculum and Instruction Department works with educators to create an instructional experience for students that is challenging, enjoyable and supports their individual growth on standards set to prepare them for college and career.
The Wisconsin Heights School District makes its curriculum available to parents, students, and the community via a web-based program called Build Your Own Curriculum (BYOC). The program provides access to individual courses, units of study, and topics within those courses which are linked to academic standards. The database can be searched by subject area and/or grade level. When you visit Wisconsin Heights’s Build Your Own Curriculum site you may notice courses marked “Being Revised.” This reflects ongoing curriculum work in the Wisconsin Heights School District. Because the curriculum is often reflected upon and revised, courses will at times not be available to the public through Build Your Own Curriculum. As soon as the updates are made, they again will become public.
Do you need help in navigating through BYOC? Please click on this link for a tutorial. Then scroll down to the “Public Website Demo”. This demonstration provides an overview for parents, students, and the community of Build Your Own Curriculum (BYOC). It will help guide users on how to use BYOC and obtain the information they are seeking.
