Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment

Welcome Message

The Dudley-Charlton Regional School District is committed to high educational standards for all our students.

Our curriculum is closely aligned to state standards, which were built upon the Common Core State Standards. These standards provide a consistent and clear understanding of what students are expected to learn in the core content areas at each grade level.

Celebrating our humanity is also extremely important to us. Curriculum programs in the areas of music, visual arts, physical education and health, help to create well-rounded students and are aligned to state and/or national standards in each field.

All of these standards are designed to collectively promote high expectations, so our students will be some of the most prepared in the world upon graduation.

Best Memory of SH: I decided to try out for the volleyball team as a freshman, despite never having picked up a volleyball before. Somehow I made the team (!) and ended up meeting some of my best friends there. Whenever I happen to eat spaghetti and meatballs in the fall, I think about all the spag nights we used to have.

Advice to Incoming Students: My motto is “be present.” It’s easy to get caught up in obsessing over the future, especially when you’re thinking about applying to college. So, always try to take a second to enjoy the place you’re at now. Make the most of your time, too. Do lots of clubs, activities, and internships to figure out what you enjoy doing. Also, keep a journal.



The Dudley-Charlton Regional School District is committed to high educational standards for all our students.

The District utilizes a comprehensive system of assessments to monitor student progress. Based on results, instruction can be differentiated to meet the needs of each student, and improvements can be made in instruction across grades and departments.

PD Opportunities

Dudley-Charlton Regional School District's vision for adult learning is one that is collaborative, continuous, embedded in daily practice and focused on student achievement. The model that we pursue builds on and strengthens the successes already evident in the district. We strive to foster a culture that supports adult learning by providing a framework that affords every educator an opportunity to enrich his/her practice.

While the ultimate goal of professional development is improved student learning, it is important to acknowledge the additional benefits of a comprehensive plan:
  • improving job satisfaction
  • improving our ability to recruit and retain new educators
  • increasing our knowledge of innovative practices
  • meeting the requirements for re-licensure
The scope of professional development (PD) will not be limited to attending a workshop or participating in a seminar with a visiting expert. PD will consistently be an ongoing process that involves sustainable improvement in student learning. This requires evaluation of student performance and teacher self-assessment, identifying possible courses of action, testing new approaches, assessing results and then beginning the process anew.
