Ensuring a guaranteed and viable curriculum is an essential part of the teaching and learning process.

Hampton City Schools is working to provide endorsed strategies that incorporate the HCS Instructional Priorities.  These strategies are not exhaustive, and teachers are encouraged to continue innovating for greater effectiveness.  The Instructional Priorities and endorsed strategies provide a research-based starting point for all classrooms on their journey to academic success.

Professional development offerings will begin to highlight how to use these strategies to meet the Instructional Priorities. In addition, we will begin to embed these strategies into the curriculum to support highly effective teaching and learning.
