Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum
"A guaranteed and viable curriculum (GVC) ensures that all students have an equal opportunity to learn. Each student will have access to an effective or highly effective teacher, and access to the same content, knowledge and skills in each section or class (Marzano, 2003).
The "I can" statements that you see by grade level are what is guaranteed at each school. There will be many other areas included in instruction by class and by teacher based on the needs and interests of the student population. Teachers will receive a guide by grade level to assist in planning for instruction, but there is also room for teachers to have flexibility to meet the needs of the learners in each class.
