Curriculum and Instruction

Ithaca Public Schools is committed to teaching our curriculum with rigor and excellence. As curriculum is evaluated and implemented, we will update that information below. 

K-6 Literacy Curriculum

On June 6, 2017, the Board of Education approved the MAISA Literacy Curriculum upon recommendation by the K-6 Literacy committee. The committee piloted three different programs, after researching many others, and came to the conclusion that MAISA was the best fit. The MAISA literacy instruction will begin implementation in the 17-18 school year.
