Minimum Guaranteed Curriculum

Page history last edited by Mike King 15 years ago

The Minimum Guaranteed Curriculum means assuring that the material taught in the school matches the standards and assessments set by the state or district for specific grade levels. It is a way of "mapping" the curriculum onto the standards to be sure that the school is teaching the content that is expected. In states that use tests to assess student mastery, schools may also align their curriculum with the content of the test to assure that students have studied the required content before taking the tests.


Increasing demands for accountability mean that schools must document that they are achieving the objectives mandated by state standards. Whatever the mechanism, standards are deeply imbedded in public opinion and state law. They are not going away any time soon. Standards have become a very high stakes issue in public education.
