Curriculum & Instruction: Director CariJo Drewitz in West St. Paul Public Schools by MASA published on 2019-10-02T16:27:51Z CariJo Drewitz is the Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment for the West St. Paul Public Schools. In her role she wears many hats. You will hear how her job is partly defined by the accountability mentality as described by Michael Fullan. You will also hear of the efforts to increase deeper learning for students by reinforcing pedagogical strategies. The curriculum role varies among districts both in job responsibilities and in placement on district organizational charts but it is a role that is at the heart of what we do in education—creating effective learning practices and environments for students.
