Curriculum in Bossier Schools

The standards in Louisiana and in Bossier Parish Schools are the Louisiana Student Standards. These standards define what students need to know but not how students learn or how teachers teach. Our teachers use the academic standards to develop lesson plans, assignments and assessments that help their students master the knowledge and skills defined by the academic standards.

Louisiana defines academic standards in seven subjects, including English language arts (reading and writing), math, science, social studies, foreign languages, physical education and health.

To access resources to support academic standards please visit the LDOE Academic Standards Library.

The Bossier Parish Schools District’s Curriculum Department has adopted the following areas of focus:
