Controversial CSCOPE Has Been Eliminated

Controversial CSCOPE Has Been Eliminated

A controversial online curriculum known as CSCOPE has been used all across the state including the Wichita Falls Independent School District. On Monday morning, State Senator Dan Patrick announced officials will vote to effectively kill the entire system.

WFISD Superintendent Dr. John Frossard released a statement regarding the future of the school district and what steps it will be taking.

"Right now we're going back and looking at what curriculum we've developed comparing it with the cscope curriculum that we use looking for gaps. We expect to work pretty hard this summer" said Dr. Frossard.

WDISD is not ready to present a full scale curriculum to the public as of right now. Administrators will be meeting with two "Teachers of the Year" and recruiting other instructors to help them formulate the new curriculum.

The school district wants to tackle transparencies and gaps in CSCOPE as well as in their old curriculums as they keep students first in mind. WFISD is asking for the public's help now more than ever to voice their opinions in order to develop the best curriculum for students.

WFISD School Board President Kevin Goldstein said, "We're going to need you more than ever to make sure that we can make this place to have the best education not only in the state of Texas but in the nation".

Schools must eliminate all lessons contained within the CSCOPE curriculum by August 31st.
