IGA – Curriculum Development

The School Board will encourage and support the professional staff in its efforts to investigate new curricular ideas, develop and improve programs, and evaluate results.

The Assistant Superintendent is responsible for curriculum and assessment development for the school system. The Assistant Superintendent will establish curriculum committees for the study of curriculum and assessment improvements, including the selection of new assessment instructional materials, as found necessary and desirable.

The Board will make final decisions on curriculum and assessment renewal and adoptions, based on the approved curriculum renewal cycle and assessment framework. The Assistant Superintendent will submit to the Board recommendations developed in conjunction with curriculum committees and the professional staff. The Board in reviewing and evaluating curriculum recommendations may solicit community opinion.

All teachers have professional obligations to the school program beyond regular classroom duties, and these obligations include work on curriculum committees. It is expected that all teachers will make contributions to curriculum development.
