All ND Regional Education Associations seek to facilitate the expansion and enrichment of curricula in member schools.
Curriculum Expansion is enhancement of curriculum or course offerings (e.g., Career and Technical Education, AP courses, dual credit courses, ITV).
Curriculum Enrichment is the process of selectively modifying a curriculum by adding educational content or new learning opportunities (e.g., MarketPlace for Kids, Expanded Learning Day, After School Programs).
Quality education systems are built upon college and career-ready standards, rich and engaging curricula based on the standards, and high-quality, aligned assessments to measure student learning. REAs should take steps to promote rigorous standards, effective assessment systems, and strong curriculum.
