Standards are guidelines that describe what students should know and be able to do in each content area by the end of a school year. School districts then adopt curriculum that best meets the needs of the district in meeting the standards. When adopting curriculum Black River Local Schools works with grade level and or content area educators to select resources that best meet the needs of our students. Typically, this is a lengthy study process where teachers and administrators look at many different materials and go through a process of selecting materials for an adoption. All content areas are reviewed so that materials are assessed in recurrent cycles to ensure they still meet the needs of the district and of the students and to ensure students and teachers have up-to-date materials.
