SHAWNEE HEIGHTS SCHOOL DISTRICT IMPLEMENTS NEW EZ MAPS

Web-based curriculum management systems have become essential to school districts that need to align their curriculum with their state standards and goals. This type of application allows a district to standardize curriculum across schools within the district and create course guides and web portals in order to share information among teachers, parents, students and other individuals.

Shawnee Heights School District uses AllofE’s eCurriculum to manage their instructional information. The district recently implemented eCurriculum’s EZ Map module. The module allows teachers to create unit maps and timelines for teaching curriculum throughout the school year. The addition of EZ Maps to Shawnee Heights School District’s eCurriculum management system provides SHSD with detailed custom unit maps that link to the Kansas standards, benchmarks, and indicators. The preloaded standards ensure that class instruction is aligned with Kansas state standards and provides teachers with a guide for what to teach, when to teach it, and how to conduct classroom activities and assessments. This user-friendly tool enables teachers to target areas for student improvement, to easily manage and share their unit maps, and to perform analysis on classroom instruction.
