• Our Committment

    The Ashland Public Schools is committed to the pursuit of academic excellence for all students. Our Blueprint for Continuous Student Improvement drives the work that we do every day to ensure that we meet this goal. The development and implementation of a clearly articulated curriculum in all subject areas is essential for success. In order to make certain that the curriculum that is currently in place meets the needs of our students, is taught to fidelity, and is aligned to the standards, the district has created and adopted a curriculum review process. This is a comprehensive process in which teachers look at essential questions, data, test results, staffing levels, and professional development and create a self study by grade level and building. This self study will highlight strengths and areas of concern across all grade levels. From this self study an action plan will be created to address the needs in English Language Arts (ELA), Math and Science to help students attain excellence.  Several self study documents can be found on our Resources & Information page.
