  • INTRODUCTION

    The North Allegheny School District utilizes the Curriculum Review Process as a systematic means for conducting an internal and external analysis of research, curriculum, and programs to make a series of recommendations for program development with specific attention to coordination and articulation to improve student learning. The purpose of the Curriculum Review Process is to ensure a continuous cycle of learning, development, and implementation.

    The Phases of that process are:

    1. Research & Program Analysis
    2. Curriculum Development and Resource Selection
    3. Initial Implementation/Revision
    4. Evaluation and Reflection

  • OUTCOMES

    The short-term goal of the Curriculum Review Process is to utilize findings from the Research/Study Phase to develop recommendations and create a written Report and presentation for the Superintendent and School Board. The long-term goal of this process is the development or refinement of a standards-based curriculum for every course with a sequenced unit-based curriculum that includes the unit, essential concepts, key learner objectives, content/resources, and common assessments. With the benefit of meaningful professional development, the implementation of this curriculum will result in learning and achievement for all students.
