Brainerd School Board Gives the Green Light to New Science and Math Curriculum for Various Grade Levels

The Future of Education in Brainerd: Preparing Students for the 2024-25 School Year and Beyond

During Monday’s meeting, the Brainerd School Board shifted its attention from summer break planning to preparing for the upcoming 2024-25 school year and beyond. Several topics were discussed, primarily focusing on curriculum for grades K-12.

Christina Lundgren, Brainerd Area Schools Director of Instructional Technology, and Robin Knutson, Digital Learning & Curriculum Specialist, presented three different curriculum proposals. The first proposal was for kindergarten through fourth grade, with a focus on media and technology to prepare students for middle school.

Next, the mathematics curriculum for grades five through eight was discussed. Knutson emphasized the importance of providing an updated method to meet state standards in this subject area.

For high school students, the proposed science curriculum involved OpenSciEd, a combination of OpenSciEd, earth, and space science courses designed to create an environment where students can effectively process information. This curriculum is aligned with the state’s framework for high school science.

The Brainerd School Board unanimously approved each of the proposed curricula, setting the stage for the future of education in the district.
