Department of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment
The Morris School District adopts an inquiry-based approach to program development that relies on research vis-à-vis wise practice in the discipline. The various Curriculum Committees go through a thorough process of conducting research to develop a synthesis of current wisdom in the discipline with faculty members and administrators engaging in research to align with core philosophical understandings, the latest in the field regarding “best” instructional practice, reviewing and recommending effective instructional materials, and supporting any new curriculum with professional development to establish a coherent program design.
The discipline specific content areas listed within our website contain the core course curricula. The many elective courses offered at Morristown High School can be viewed in the Program of Studies. Copies of our elective course curricula can be viewed and shared as the need arises by simply contacting the Curriculum Office at 973 292 2300 ext 2112.
