Cindy Dann
Executive Secretary for Curriculum and Instruction


The Curriculum and Instruction office provides leadership and instructional support across academic disciplines to positively impact student achievement and promote life-long learning. The instructional program is designed to ensure that students acquire relevant skills, knowledge, and attitudes and are challenged to exceed standards of performance to become dedicated and productive members of society. In short: Cortland graduates will be world-ready.

Our office strives to provide those who lead and teach the needed support, instructional materials, technologies, research-based teaching methods, and continuous professional development experiences to effect successful, life-long learning for students and educators. Use these links to find your resources for curriculum, instruction, and assessment in the Cortland Enlarged City School District.
