Welcome to the Curriculum and Instruction Department!

Shelby County Schools offers a comprehensive instructional program for over 46,000 students enrolled in grades K-12. The district is dedicated to the belief that each student is a unique person. Success-oriented, standards-based, and technology-driven learning experiences are utilized to encourage each student to reach his or her maximum potential-intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically, aesthetically, and morally. From the foundation laid at the elementary level through the basic level courses and the wide range of Advanced Placement courses offered in the high schools, Shelby County Schools meets the academic needs of today¹s students.

The Shelby County Schools Curriculum & Instruction Department believes:

We must develop and support the art and science of effective teacher instruction and student learning through innovation informed by research.

Excellent instructional leadership has a direct impact on teaching and learning and uses data to drive student success.

Our department is called by duty to ensure that all students have numerous opportunities to gain skills and knowledge for college and career readiness.
