Competency-Based Curriculum

OCNE’s curriculum is “spiraled,” referring to the intentional revisiting of major topics throughout the curriculum at increasing levels of complexity, so that new is related to previous learning.

*The OCNE May Conference is planned to be a face-to-face event and guidelines and recommendations related to group gatherings will be closely monitored and observed.
