Our mission is to prepare students to be knowledgeable and productive citizens in our society. This office works with the district’s energetic, knowledgeable, and professional staff to make this goal a reality. A major responsibility of the Regional Office of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment is to articulate with our four sending districts: Hillsdale, Montvale, River Vale and Woodcliff Lake. Communication among the five districts is essential so that students receive a quality K-12 education. Another area of responsibility of this office is to monitor the district curriculum, making certain that it is equivalent in both high schools and that it meets the needs of students as they enter the 21st century. The curriculum of the Pascack Valley Regional High School District is designed to provide students with a rigorous and meaningful educational experience. Students are provided with a firm grounding in the core content areas while independent and critical thinking skills, as well as oral and written expression, are emphasized. College preparatory, Honors and Advanced Placement courses challenge all students to meet high district expectations.
A goal of the district is to provide differentiated instruction that meets the wide range of student readiness, interest, and learning profile. Through staff development opportunities, this office encourages teachers to use a wide variety of instructional strategies and methods of assessment, thus providing students with multiple opportunities to learn and demonstrate understanding and mastery of the material. Teachers are supported and encouraged to infuse technology into instruction, so that students learn and practice skills that will serve them in the future.
