Using the Match Curriculum

1. Match Fishtank and the Match Curriculum

Welcome to Match Fishtank! [Match Education, through The Match Foundation, Inc., Match Charter Public School and The Charles Sposato Graduate School of Education, Inc.] (referred to on this page collectively as “Match,” “we,” “us” or “our”),  makes available a version of the curriculum we use at Match Charter Public School (the “Match Curriculum”) through the Match Fishtank site at www.matchfishtank.org (“Match Fishtank”).  Match Fishtank is our effort to share the Match Curriculum with teachers everywhere to lessen their lesson-planning load so that they are able to spend less time worrying about what to teach and more time planning how to teach, with the unique learning needs of their students in mind.

The Match Curriculum includes both content owned by Match (“Match Content”) and content owned by third parties (“Third-Party Content”).
