National Core Knowledge Visitation Site

Core Knowledge

Kinard was recently selected as a national visitation school by the Core Knowledge Foundation.  The school is one of only 24 schools among the over 1200 schools nationwide using the Core Knowledge Curriculum to make a list of schools that is recommended to be visited by other schools that are considering implementing the Core Knowledge Curriculum. Kinard is one of only two schools in the state of Colorado to be given this distinction, and the only middle school in Colorado to make the list.

On the Core Knowledge Foundation’s website the list of schools is described with this statement:

“The following schools in the Core Knowledge community have been visited relatively recently by Foundation staff and were found to be implementing the Core Knowledge Sequence or Core Knowledge Language Arts with fidelity. Schools considering adopting the Sequence or CKLA are encouraged to visit these sites to see Core Knowledge in action.”

Congratulations to the staff, students, parents, and entire Kinard community for this wonderful honor!
