Curriculum development must be viewed as an encompassing task involving the total community, including students, teachers, and parents, working cooperatively to develop a curriculum that offers a wide variety of approaches to meet the needs of our diverse student population.

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

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

The Board will make final decisions regarding the program of studies.

It is expected that all teachers make contributions to curriculum development.
