Welcome to Curriculum & Instruction

Our Curriculum and Instruction Department oversees a wide range of educational aspects in District 122.  Our curriculum is developed through research-based instructional practices and strategies for differentiated, innovative and effective teaching and learning.

The department works to ensure Ridgeland School District 122’s curriculum is aligned with the Illinois Learning Standards. Through the Professional Learning Community Model, our administration and staff work together collaboratively to choose appropriate instructional materials, textbooks, and technology to help our students meet the challenge of being a 21st Century Learner. Our teachers are provided with plentiful opportunities to enhance their teaching skills through quality professional development including partnerships with the South Cook Intermediate Service Center, various colleges, online webinars through various educational organizations, staff development days, and on the job coaching through our instructional coaching program.

Below are a variety of links and various websites to help support learning at home. Follow us on Facebook at Ridgeland School District 122 and Twitter #rsd122cares to find out more about our very talented staff and students!
