Welcome to the Curriculum and Instruction Department!
The Birmingham City School System offers a curriculum based on national and state and local standards that guide classroom instruction and assessment. These standards articulate the skills, knowledge and understanding all students need to become productive, educated citizens.
The overarching goal of Birmingham City Schools is to continuously refine classroom instruction and professional practice in order to keep pace with the ever-evolving expectations of the 2lst century. Towards that end, we are establishing a framework of professional development that fosters the growth of professional learning communities within our schools. Within the parameters of identified standards, the Birmingham City Schools System offers a broad range of academic curriculum designed to meet the individual needs of all students from early childhood to college preparatory.
