FILE CODE: 6142
The board of education directs that the district schools offer a comprehensive curriculum to provide for the intellectual, social and emotional growth of all pupils, giving them the basic body of skills, understandings, attitudes and knowledge needed for living as responsible and mature adults in a democratic society.
The board believes this program should focus first on those subjects included in the Core Curriculum Content Standards and the skills emphasized by the Cross-Content Workplace Readiness Standards, in addition to those courses mandated by statute.
The superintendent shall direct development of and present to the board for adoption a written curriculum for each element of the instructional program for the district to include:
A. All courses mandated by New Jersey statute or administrative code;
B. Such other courses as shall implement the board's intent as expressed in this policy.
The total curriculum, when adopted, shall be adapted to suit the applicable requirements of the administrative code and shall provide basic, advanced, enriched, or technical instruction or experience to meet the identified needs of the pupils of the district.
A listing of all courses and programs comprising the instructional program shall be available in the district office.
