INSTRUCTION

Curriculum Strategies

A.  The content of the curriculum will provide a planned and balanced program of instruction that is in keeping with the abilities, interests, and educational needs of students.

1.  The curriculum will provide for a fundamental core of knowledge so that, minimally, upon graduation, each student will have demonstrated an ability to read, write, think, evaluate, reason, and compute.

2.  Adequate plans for enrichment and remediation will be provided for students in need of such assistance.

3.  In order to develop an appreciation of other cultures, opportunities for multicultural experiences are encouraged.

B.  The curriculum will promote, by precept and example, character-building, traditional American social values, good citizenship, honesty, and love of country.

C.  The curriculum will incorporate effective instructional strategies to address the needs of an increasingly diverse and transient population.

D.  The School Board will approve all major changes to the curriculum.
