Teaching and Learning:
The Grandview C-4 School District prides itself on being a leader in innovative teaching and learning practices in our classrooms. In fact, our district was the one of the first in the Kansas City metro area to implement Project Lead the Way in our schools. By the 2018-19 school year, we will have expanded Project Lead the Way into all of our schools and implemented at every grade level.
Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is part of the science curriculum. The PLTW Launch program empowers students to adopt a design-thinking mindset through compelling activities, projects, and problems that build upon each other and relate to the world around them. It allows students to engage in hands-on activities in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science.
Our Curriculum Power Standards:
Power standards are a subset of learning standards that our district uses to determine the highest priority of student learning at each grade level. Power standards provide the knowledge and skills that students are expected to learn in all major subject areas and all grade levels (kindergarten through twelfth grade).
Power standards are developed or selected at the district level by administrators and teachers. The power standards for each grade level and subject in our district can be located on the menu at the right side of this page.
About Our Department:

The mission of the Instructional Services Center is to facilitate improved student achievement at all sites and grade levels.
