The Connecticut State Department of Education supports its school districts with the development of rigorous and relevant curriculum, PK-12. Curricular development takes place at the district level through meaningful, ongoing, data-informed discussions involving districtwide educators.

Supporting district-based curriculum development, the state provides resources to include frameworks with standards and grade-level expectations, templates for curriculum, and sample lessons and assessments. State-provided professional development, supplementary resources, and Bureau of Teaching and Learning staff are also available to assist.
