Curriculum & Instruction
Mr. Rick Burkett, Director of Curriculum and Instruction, began his career with the Tuscarora School District as an English teacher during the 1987-88 school year. Since that time, he has served as a Principal of St. Thomas and Mt. View Elementary Schools, Assistant Principal at James Buchanan High School, and more recently, Principal of Instructional Technology.
The aim of the department of Curriculum and Instruction is to provide access to a guaranteed and viable curriculum built upon both PA and National standards. We aim to prepare our students for their future success through the use of innovative, engaging instructional practices designed to ensure every child achieves at high levels. Currently, the Tuscarora School District is developing a Professional Learning Culture where teachers will collaboratively design, deliver, and assess a standards-based curriculum through a systemic, sustained Curriculum Mapping process.
