The Curriculum and Instruction Department supports over 13,000 students each day by providing leadership, oversight, and collaborative decision making processes to each school building in our district. We strive to maximize the funds our public school receives in order to meet the needs of our diverse student population.
The Curriculum and Instruction Department supports the academic programming in the district. These areas include: Curriculum Development, Curricular Material Utilization, Instructional Coaching, English as a New Language Programming and Instructional Support, Grant Writing and Management (Including Title I, Title II, Title III Grants), Principal Support K-12, Oversight of Career and Technical Education Programming, Oversight of Alternative Education, State Assessments, and District Instructional Technology.
The Tippecanoe School Corporation follows the Indiana Academic Standards as its core curriculum, which specifies the minimum expectations for learning in all grades and disciplines. Locally-developed additions to the curriculum serve to expand and enrich these state-wide measures of performance. The core curriculum is fluid and flexible, responding to the learning needs of students and affected by new information and technologies. Therefore, the Tippecanoe School Corporation curriculum is constantly undergoing periodic and systematic analysis and revision.

Harrison and McCutcheon High Schools are comprehensive secondary schools. The needs of each student are considered when offering an educational program. This guide is to inform students and parents of the requirements and the opportunities available within the curriculum of the Tippecanoe School Corporation. The descriptions are meant to be brief. More complete information and course outlines may be obtained from the schools’ counseling departments.
The Counseling Departments would like to work with students, parents, and faculty in planning each student’s course of study, although the primary responsibility for selecting courses must be taken by the student and his/her parents. Students will be aided through counseling as to what is available, what is required, and the possible outcomes of different choices. However, the actual choices are left to the student. If college bound, the student may wish to consult with his/her college choice for proper high school preparation classes.
