Curriculum

The Whitman-Hanson Regional School District has begun a comprehensive review of our programs and materials to insure that all materials are fully aligned for and ready for implementation of the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks.

English & Mathematics
The Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education voted, on July 21, 2010, to adopt the Common Core State Standards. These national standards have been adopted by 44 of the 50 states in United States of America. In the Spring of 2011 the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education released the final versions of the Massachusetts Common Core Curriculum Frameworks.

Science
In January of 2016 the Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education voted to adopt a Massachusetts version of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The 2016 STE standards maintain much of the content of the 2001/2006 standards with updates to reflect changes identified by the field, changes to content of science and engineering over the past 15 years, and the addition of inquiry and design skills students need to successfully engage in this discipline in PreK-12 classrooms, civic life, and post-secondary opportunities. The 2016 STE standards strengthen the often-lauded science standards Massachusetts has relied on since 2001.
