Curriculum Advisory Committee

  • On a six-year schedule, the school district updates classroom curricula – updating one or two subjects each year. It's important to the school board that parents and community members are actively involved in this review of what is taught in our community's classrooms.

    This committee works closely with the curriculum department to ensure the curriculum and classroom materials stay current. By researching new trends in education, developing curriculum guidelines and approving textbooks, these dedicated community volunteers work to provide students, from kindergarten to high school, the most relevant education possible.

2018-19 Meeting Dates

2017-18 Meetings Dates
