Welcome to the Briarcliff Manor Union Free School District curriculum and instruction website. You will find a unit calendar of most subjects at the K-12 level. Many curriculum maps are presently being created and revised to reflect changes in our curriculum. This tool will help you gain an overview of the curriculum.
A curriculum map, through Atlas, is a tool for organizing what Briarcliff Manor Union Free School District expects students to know and be able to do in subjects, over the course of the year. A unit calendar outlines the name/topic of the unit and when it will be taught throughout the school year. As you can imagine, a two-dimensional map cannot capture the rich, multi-dimensional curriculum we teach. We hope that you will find this information valuable, as a resource for understanding what our students are learning.
Our curriculum maps are not individual lesson plans. These curriculum maps are broad outlines of what students learn throughout the year. Maps are collaboratively created by our teachers, who spend many hours reaching consensus about the curriculum that is essential for our students.
These maps are still in the developmental phase and more components will become available and modified over time.
