The curricula are the written courses of study that are designed to achieve the broad learning goals and related specific objectives of the Board. The curricula should provide students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to develop their potential as individuals and responsible citizens.
The Board recognizes the need and value of a systematic, continuous program of curriculum development and evaluation. The Board encourages the professional staff to investigate new curricular ideas, develop and improve programs, and evaluate results.
The Superintendent, supported by the Curriculum Director, will direct curriculum development activities that involve professional staff members and, when appropriate, community and students. Teachers are encouraged to participate in these activities at the school and district levels. (1-27-03)
