Curriculum Committees 2017-2018

Purpose: 

“Continually monitor and adjust curriculum development, instructional practices, and learning expectations so that they evolve with research and futuristic outcomes to close the achievement gap and meet the broad range of our students’ learning needs and aspirations.” The purpose of these various district curriculum committees is to ensure that the GFPS Long Range Goal is met while doing so in a legally defendable process as set by school board policies and required by state accreditation standards. For a more complete picture of all the requirements of policy and accreditation law and how GFPS fulfills these requirements, please see Click Here!

Other Information: 

These content specific committees are responsible for the review, revisions, preview, and recommendations to the superintendent for adoption of any new curriculum, textbooks, resources, and course offerings. The work by these committees also sets the direction for the resulting implementation and assessment committees that will form as a result of the formal adoption by the GFPS Board of Trustees.
