The purpose of Old Bridge Township School District's curriculum is to provide students with an outstanding instructional program that results in high student achievement. Curriculum development in the district is guided by two major factors: the New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS) and research-based educational practices that have been proven to enhance learning for all students. The NJSLS are written statements adopted by the State Board of Education that define New Jersey's expectations for student learning in seven academic content areas. In Old Bridge Township, all curriculum areas are reviewed and revised annually. Committees of teachers and administrators research the best educational practices, review current curriculum and materials, align curriculum objectives to the NJSLS, develop revisions, and develop plans for program implementation and evaluation. An extensive professional learning program provides staff with the necessary training and support to implement an outstanding educational program.
