2220 - ADOPTION OF COURSES OF STUDY
The Board of Education shall provide a comprehensive instructional program to serve the educational needs of the students of this District. The Board shall periodically adopt courses of study that define the key components of the District's curriculum and instruction.
No course of study shall be taught in the schools of this District unless the Educational Service Center Board adopted it and this Board approved it. The Educational Service Center Board shall determine which units of the instructional program constitute courses of study and are thereby subject to its adoption procedures.
Each course of study is intended to provide a basic framework for instruction and learning. Within this framework, each teacher shall use the course of study in a manner best designed to meet the needs of the students for whom s/he is responsible. Deviation from its content must be approved in accordance with the Superintendent's administrative guidelines.
Since one of the District's goals is to prepare students to enter the world of work, the Board directs that each course of study include as part of its learning accomplishments that students can demonstrate their willingness and ability to be punctual, to be present at the learning site each day unless absent for a legitimate reason, and to complete assignments on time and as directed. The Superintendent's guidelines should include recommendations to staff on how to instruct students in these important work ethics and how to include these learnings in the grades that students receive.
The Superintendent shall maintain a current list of all courses of study offered by this District.
The list shall include the data on each furnished with the recommendation for its adoption.
