Brainerd School Board Approves Science and Math Curricula for Various Grade Levels

Brainerd School Board Approves Curriculum Changes to Prepare Students for Middle School and Ensure State Standards

As the summer break comes to an end, the Brainerd School Board is already gearing up for the upcoming 2024-25 school year. During a recent meeting, the board discussed plans for curriculum changes across all grade levels, with a particular focus on preparing students for middle school and ensuring they meet state standards.

Digital Learning & Curriculum Specialist Robin Knutson and Director of Instructional Technology Christina Lundgren presented three curriculum proposals to the board. The first proposal was for kindergarten through fourth grade, which emphasized media and technology to prepare students for the transition to middle school. The second proposal focused on updating the mathematics curriculum for grades five through eight to better meet state standards in that subject.

For high school students, the proposed science curriculum centered around OpenSciEd, a program that combined OpenSciEd, earth, and space science courses. This curriculum was designed to create an optimal learning environment that aligned with the state’s framework for high school science education while also helping students process information effectively.

The Brainerd School Board unanimously approved each of the proposed curriculum changes, demonstrating their commitment to providing their students with the best possible education and preparing them for future academic success.
