The Framework for K-12 Success
BuildYourOwnCurriculum (BYOC) is a curriculum management framework focused on improving student achievement in K-12 school districts. Our award-winning software enables districts to bring the teaching–and learning–experience into an evolving documented process that is easy to use, accessible anywhere, and aligned district-wide. By simply entering curriculum once, then continuously assessing and improving, educators can save time on curriculum management, enter a process of continuous improvement, and shift attention to their true passion–teaching.
BYOC was originally created by teachers–for teachers–to build and manage district curriculum. Today, we offer two editions of BYOC giving districts the choice of how their curriculum will drive their classroom instruction. Both options provide district-wide common curriculum, while our upgraded BYOC+ edition offers added features such as district-defined electronic assessments and a curriculum-based classroom management system. Parent access to published curriculum is available using a customized website. Student access to classroom resources, assignments, group discussions, events, and assessments is also available using a secure portal.
BYOC’s user-friendly online framework allows you to house living, viable district curriculum in a format that guarantees ongoing and systematic growth across your district.
Define consistent learning targets to ensure all students experience the same path of curriculum with smooth grade-to-grade and course-to-course transitions, regardless of the teacher or building.
Once curriculum is written and entered, BYOC allows you to easily make incremental changes at any time, providing your district with opportunity to achieve continual improvement with a viable curriculum.
K-12 Vertical Articulation
Get a “big picture” view of how your curriculum guides instruction. Ensure courses are building upon and feeding into each other, and students are receiving the appropriate instruction for their grade level.
Align your curriculum to meet crucial state and national standards. Easily analyze your curriculum alignment within the BYOC database and address issues raised in standards-based assessments.
Create curriculum as unique as your district! Flexible design provides guidance to input curriculum without hindering district creativity, needs or beliefs. Define differentiations in a course, or note accommodations and modifications within a course.
Family and Community Engagement
BYOC makes sharing your curriculum easy. Use BYOC to publish curriculum online for public consumption, providing total transparency to students, families or the entire community.
Collaborate with over 500 districts to make curriculum better! Teachers can use the search function to discover and replicate entire courses, units, topics or activities from other districts, while also sharing their own curriculum.
Ensure your curriculum is driving instruction in the classroom. Teachers can manage classroom activity with district-defined standards, aligned assessments, online assignments, discussion groups and a student portal complete with a calendar of targeted events and announcements.
