Welcome to the curriculum and instruction page!

At Governor Mifflin we continually strive to improve our educational program to meet the needs of every learner. In doing so, we follow the requirements set forth by Pennsylvania to align our programs to the PA Core and Academic Standards while providing an engaging and challenging academic program with the use of quality classroom instruction based on effective instructional strategies from the Learning Focused Schools  framework. The ultimate goal of our work is to prepare all students to become critical thinkers who are career and college ready.

The curriculum was completely aligned in the past few years to meet the requirements for the use of PA Core Standards, and the new standards were implemented for the first time in 2013-14.

As we continue with the implementation of the PA Core Standards we will see large shifts in expectation of skills and content – also in materials to be used with students (text complexity for all learners is just one example). The shifts will be seen in grade level expectations as some skills are expected at younger ages by at least one grade level than they were under the PA Academic Standards. There are things you can do to support your learner at home.
