X Other Reasons
The superintendent shall oversee development of curriculum guides for every course and area of study for every grade level. Each guide shall contain objectives for concepts and skills to be taught; suggested materials and activities designed to achieve all of these; and evaluation criteria intended to test the extent to which learning objectives have been met. Curriculum guides shall include all requirements of the Core Curriculum Content Standards.
Teachers shall use their own grade level curricula guides as the core of their instructional planning. It shall be the responsibility of the building principal to ensure that curriculum guides are being followed.
A copy of each guide in use shall be kept on file in each school office. Only those courses of study included in the curriculum guides constitute courses of study officially adopted by the board. Such guides shall be available for public inspection.
Because curriculum guides are the means of implementing instruction in courses adopted by the board as the curriculum of the district, the board shall approve any new curriculum guides or any revision to an existing guide before they are put into effect.
