Curriculum Revision Process

  •   The FNSBSD curriculum process, outlined in Administrative Regulations 910 Appendix A, is on a six-year cycle and includes the following stages:  research and review, develop and define, implement, and measure-refine-revise.  The research and review stage begins with community input, and a research group meets to complete an in-depth study of the current curriculum to determine its effectiveness, research current trends in curriculum content and pedagogy, and to begin developing competencies.  Then, during the develop and define stage, curriculum writers review this work and start draft one.  Each draft goes out for public comment and the writers review and consider all comments and suggestions.  After there is a general consensus on the curriculum proposal, a final draft is submitted to the Board Curriculum Committee for a recommendation and the School Board for adoption.  Once the curriculum is adopted, it is implemented in the schools, usually the next school year, and professional development is provided as needed.  Finally, the curriculum enters the measure, refine, and revise stage during years four through six.
