Curriculum and Instruction


Oklahoma Academic Standards serve as expectations for what students should know and be able to do at each grade level. The standards cover all areas of a student’s academic growth. These detailed sets of standards guide teachers and school leaders as they plan curriculum, instruction and assessment for students.

There must be rigor in the core curricula so that students become better thinkers and problem solvers who can apply and transfer what they learn to the world beyond school. In order to prepare all students for future success, Putnam City strives to make core curriculum rigorous and relevant.
