Curriculum Evaluation and Revision Process
Evaluation of the curriculum is ongoing and is the responsibility of all those who are involved in the process of writing curriculum. Teachers at all levels will be asked to identify the content strengths and weaknesses of the priority standards, the suggested resources and assessment tools. Annually, administrators and teachers will look at the school-wide results on state and national assessments and determine areas that need to be addressed.
This evaluation will take into consideration data collected from assessments, parents, teachers and administrators. Changes in state and national standards, critical issues in the content area, and new developments in educational pedagogy will be considered. Using this information the committee will make recommended changes.
