CURRICULUM (GENERAL)
8110 CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT, RESOURCES AND EVALUATION

Curriculum Development

The Brockport Central School District recognizes the importance of developing the academic, emotional, physical and social growth of each child, leading to fully contributing members of society. These unique needs will be met through an ongoing and systematic review and development of the curriculum. Based on the premise that the curriculum provides the building blocks of educational programs, we support a clearly defined and sequentially designed K-12 curriculum. We encourage a variety of teaching methods and styles in the presentation of the curriculum so that all students can reach their maximum potential.

In keeping with this philosophy, the District will review, update and oversee the K-12 curriculum. Teacher is encouraged and necessary.

Curriculum Resources

There are many resources for curriculum development that exist in our School District, and the instructional staff, under the guidance of the administration, is expected to delve into those resources for possible improvement of the instructional program. Each teacher has the privilege of being an initiator of improvement, as well as a reactor to changing conditions, and the principals shall be involved in curriculum development.

From the staff, the Superintendent may appoint curriculum study committees, and their findings, as well as the collective judgments of the staff about the pertinence of various possible changes, shall be submitted by the Superintendent to the Board of Education for consideration in the forming of curriculum policy.

Curriculum Evaluation

The Board of Education shall direct a continuing evaluation of the curriculum as part of a program of instructional improvement.

All aspects of the curriculum shall be subjected to an objective analysis based on empirical data and critical analysis in an attempt to improve the learning and growth of students.

The administrative staff shall evaluate the curriculum in a systematic manner, involving school personnel and others as appropriate.

The administrative staff shall make periodic recommendations for action by the Board. The Board of Education from time to time may invite teachers or others to discuss the curriculum.

Evaluation of the Instructional Program

The Board of Education expects staff members to maintain a continual program of evaluation at every level to determine the extent of progress toward the schools' objectives. The Board of Education will periodically request the Superintendent to present data that it considers necessary to evaluate the effectiveness of the School System.
