The Board of Education supports and encourages development of a District-wide, articulated curriculum that conforms to state mandates and is responsive to the needs of children in a rapidly changing society. The Assistant Superintendent for Instruction shall be responsible to the Superintendent for developing District-wide efforts toward the short and long-range improvement of curriculum and instruction.  

Curriculum Resources

There are many resources for curriculum development that exist in our School District, and the instructional staff, under the guidance of the administration, is expected to delve into those resources for possible improvement of the instructional program. Each teacher has the privilege of being an initiator of improvement, as well as a reactor to changing conditions, and the principals shall be involved in curriculum development.  

From the staff, the Superintendent may appoint curriculum study committees, and their findings, as well as the collective judgments of the staff about the pertinence of various possible changes, shall be submitted by the Superintendent to the Board of Education for consideration in the forming of curriculum policy.

Curriculum Evaluation

The Board of Education shall direct a continuing evaluation of the curriculum as part of a program of instructional improvement. The Assistant Superintendent of Instruction shall evaluate the curriculum in a systematic manner, involving school personnel and others as appropriate.

The Assistant Superintendent of Instruction shall make periodic recommendations for action by the Board. The Board of Education from time to time may invite teachers or others to discuss the curriculum.
