Elementary and Secondary Curricula
Welcome to the Family Curriculum resource. This area has been designed to provide Hamden Public School Families information regarding our curricula. This site can be used to assist you in supporting your child/children in their learning and also promote family involvement.
Educational standards are the learning goals for what students should know and be able to do at each grade level. Education standards, like Common Core are not a curriculum. Local communities and educators choose their own curriculum, which is a detailed plan for day to day teaching. In other words, the Common Core is what students need to know and be able to do, and curriculum is how students will learn it.
