DCPS' Curriculum and OnCourse
The mission of Academic Services is to provide
support for the implementation of high quality
educational opportunities for children. This mission is
in line with the
Vision & Guiding Principles.
The curriculum for Duval County Public Schools is
housed in OnCourse. OnCourse transforms the static statement of
goals and methods into a dynamic interface - thus making
it an interactive curriculum map.
Destination Success is an online Reading and
Math software program that is accessible 24/7 to ALL
elementary students enrolled in Duval County Public
Schools. The content is engaging and aligned to
our Reading and Math curriculum.
The DCPS Academic Looking Glass
newsletter is a quick reference guide that details
the district curriculum that students should be learning
during a sliding two week window in the core content
areas of Science, Math, Reading, Writing, English
Language Arts (ELA) and Social Studies. The
Looking Glass is distributed electronically to
principals, teachers and district staff on a bi-weekly
basis during the school year. Other content areas
regularly covered by the newsletter include Read 180,
select Advance Placement (AP) courses and timely
information from departments such as Exceptional Student
Education and Guidance Services.
