Curriculum Highlights
The Caesar Rodney School District has established a curriculum development process that supports alignment to the existing Common Core State Standards and Grade Level Expectations. This process involves teacher and administrative input through a Curriculum Cabinet and Council process. The preparation of our students as life-long learners in a global community of the 21st century society is the unifying objective of this process. The curriculum not only identifies essential knowledge and skills, but also supports students’ development in problem solving and gathering and using resources that will enable them to succeed. Each content area (English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Visual and Performing Arts, Physical Education, Health, and Family and Consumer Sciences) also has an Assessment of Learning and Assessment for Learning component to support students in the learning process and to determine specific performance relative to the State Standard.

Students at the John S. Charlton Program participate in community based instruction, life skills, and vocational training.

The school sponsors and supports family participation through Provider Fairs, Family Fun Nights, Family Information Evenings, and Transition Planning Nights. Parents are active in many of our events, such as the monthly Positive Behavior Support Celebrations, the School Success Planning Committee, and the Autism Parent Advisory Committee that meets every month.
