The Office of Curriculum and Instruction is one facet under the Department of Teaching and Learning. Along with, the Offices of Special Education and State & Federal Programs we are committed to providing the students of Warren with curriculum and instruction that builds core academic knowledge and complex thinking skills. Our PK-12 curriculum follows Ohio’s Learning Standards in each content area. Our teachers, supported by the ELA and Math Coordinators and School Improvement Supervisors developed new units, aligned materials, and created assessments aligned to the new standards and state assessments.
