Hoboken Curriculum Committee Update by Discipline

The following is a quick summary of where we are with the revised curriculum. As you can see we are essentially completed with the initial draft with some individual units remaining to be completed. The list below indicates what remains to be completed--all other grades are now completed with a first draft. What remains is a cycle of edits and feedback where we plan to include external and internal reviewers as well as involvement from parents and community members. -Dr. Petrosino
