Standards of Quality K-5: Performance Outcomes
Click below to view the highlights
of our Elementary School program.
The Birmingham Public Schools Strategic Plan calls for a curriculum which is updated and challenging for all students. An important component is the philosophy of developmentally appropriate practices in which curriculum and instructional strategies should be both age and individually appropriate. Curriculum planning and staff development, incorporating developmentally appropriate practices,áoccur progressively beginningáat theákindergarten level.

Philosophy:
The experiences and knowledge young children bring to school, combined with their natural curiosity, are the foundations for learning in the primary grades.áOur program is designed to help develop children's potentials. The emphasis is on learning experiences which help children make connections between existing knowledge and new skills and information. All subject area outcomes are clearly defined, but learning is linked across these subject area boundaries. Classroom experiences are designed to be mutually reinforcing. In this manner, children see the connections between skills learned and their importance in real life.

Technology
With the introduction of our Engage program at Birmingham Covington School and the !gnite program throughout the district, technology has become an integral partáof the BPS curriculum.áStudents utilize technology daily in classrooms and in their school media center for a variety of tasks: exploring answers to questions, collaborating with experts and peers, analyzing and representing data, and authoring documents and presentations.áIn addition, classroom teachers use technology tools to help students better learn and understand subject-area content through the use of engaging multimedia resources.
