Curriculum Choice

In the TK-6th Personalized Learning Path, each student will be assigned a Teacher of Record to provide guidance in selecting the best curriculum choices for the student. The ToR and family work together to complete a Course of Study for the student, to identify curriculum options that will meet the student’s needs, school guidelines and state standards. Curriculum can vary from traditional textbook, online classes, hands-on project based, or classes through our Content & Community Providers. Below are links to Excel’s Curriculum Menus and Handbook. These can be used to help you start selecting a curriculum. If there is a curriculum that you are interested in and is not listed please work with your ToR.
