Science Curriculum Review
We conduct a districtwide K-12 evaluation of a curricular area on an eight-year cycle. Science began this review process in the spring of 2015 with a survey to the different stakeholders in our district (students, parents, teachers, administrators). A self-study committee was developed during the 2015-16 school year to spearhead the analysis of the survey and the development of the improvement plan.
The committee tasks included: a review of the mission, beliefs, standards and goals of the curricular area; an analysis of the survey and identification of strengths and limitations of the area; development of an improvement plan which includes recommendations and action steps; and communication with district staff.
