At the regular school board meeting on Monday, August 22, the board heard from District Curriculum Coordinator Jean Elsenpeter about curriculum updates and Superintendent Mark Redemske provided facility project updates in preparation for the start of the new school year.
Elsenpeter updated the board on the curriculum review process, presenting the curriculum development and review plan. The plan outlines the rotation and process in which curriculums are updated. She also addressed the need for a curriculum committee. The committee would continually oversee and regulate the curriculum review process, as well as provide a means of communication between teachers, faculty and parents.
“I would like to see a curriculum committee started,” said Elsenpeter “to enhance communication, especially between high school and elementary teachers.
