    The Avon School District offers a comprehensive educational program to all students in grades K-8. In addition to a general education curriculum, targeted academic instruction and interventions are also provided for students through our Special Services, English Language Learning, and Enrichment programs. Our curriculum is designed to address the New Jersey Student Learning Standards. Alignment, assessment, and revision of the scope and sequence of instruction is an ongoing curricular process involving all instructional staff.
