Universal Mosaic Curriculum

To deepen our commitment to every student, recognizing the multiple forms of diversity understood and regarded as indispensable sources of knowledge, the NYCDOE is co-designing a rigorous, inclusive, affirming, and standards-aligned K-12 English Language Arts and Math curricula, the Universal Mosaic Curriculum, that will be available to all schools by fall 2023.

Current work underway for the Universal Mosaic Curriculum include:

  • Diverse Classroom Book Collections at each NYCDOE school that center the lived experiences of NYC students
  • Elevating the insights and perspectives of students, families, educators, and community stakeholders through continuous engagement to co-design the Universal Mosaic Curriculum.
  • Prioritizing high-quality learning experiences where students both see themselves in the curriculum while practicing and exceeding proficiency in content and applied skills aligned to rigorous learning standards

Please reach out to mosaiccurriculum@schools.nyc.gov with any inquiries or questions about the Universal Mosaic Curriculum.

NYCDOE will continue to provide updates with opportunities for families to participate as co-designers in the Universal Mosaic Curriculum.
