Background
  • The acquisition and development of a Curriculum
    Management System (CMS) was identified by the
    Division of Curriculum and Instruction and the
    Northside ISD 10-year Technology Master Plan as
    a high-priority need to facilitate
    standards-based teaching, learning and
    assessment.
  • To meet this need, a cross-representative team
    from Curriculum and Instruction and Technology
    Services embarked on the "CMS Project" in
    February 2003.

CMSWhat is it?
  • A well designed Curriculum Management System
    (CMS) is a computer-based system that seamlessly
    links and aligns all teaching, learning and
    assessment components so that teachers and
    administrators are able to focus on teaching
    and on meeting the needs of each and every
    student.

    and staff development on research-based best
    practices are totally aligned.

A Curriculum Management System Can
  • Seamlessly link and align all teaching, learning
    and assessment components so that teachers and
    administrators are able to focus on teaching and
    on meeting the needs of each and every student
  • Help students, parents, teachers, and
    administrators focus on knowledge and skills
    required for promotion, course completion and
    success on standardized tests (e.g. TAKS)
  • Enable the systematic collection of data
    pertaining to school, district, state and
    national standards and assessments

16
A Curriculum Management System Can
  • Seamlessly aggregate, disaggregate and report
    assessment information immediately to all
    appropriate stakeholders
  • Provide all stakeholders with a standardized
    Web-based system for monitoring and reporting
    student and group progress
  • Allow District and campus instructional staff to
    analyze and interpret the data to guide
    decision-making and identify strengths and
    weaknesses in student, teacher, curriculum,
    program and school performance

17
A Curriculum Management System Can
  • Facilitate curriculum design and development,
    lesson planning, teaching and learning,
    standards mastery, testing, and grading
  • Reduce paperwork and save time for teachers and
    administrators
  • Help teachers improve their effectiveness in the
    classroom
  • Help the District ensure that all legal
    requirements are met (NCLB, AEIS, IDEA, etc.)

18
A Curriculum Management System Can
  • Streamline the benchmarking process
  • Allow teachers to share model lesson plans and
    teaching practices
  • Help teachers customize instruction based on
    student progress and individual learning needs

    resources for students and parents
