EVALUATION OF INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS

 


The Board of Education shall direct the superintendent to implement appropriate methods for a continual evaluation of the district's curriculum, educational program and instructional processes.


The purpose of evaluation of instruction will be:

 

          To assess educational needs and provide information for planning.

          To indicate instructional strengths and weaknesses.

          To check on the suitability of programs in terms of community requirements.

          To show the relationship between achievement and the system's stated goals.

          To provide data for public information.


The Board will rely on the professional staff to provide continual evaluation of the educational program and instructional processes. The Board will rely upon the professional staff for such evaluation; it may arrange for evaluations to be completed by outside agencies.


The superintendent or designee will periodically review appropriate research studies to determine recent trends and developments in evaluation techniques.


The superintendent will prepare and maintain written reports about the educational programs and instructional processes of the district and provide copies to the Board upon request and as necessary to carry out the Board evaluations required by this policy. The reports will include the goals and objectives of each program, progress toward meeting those goals and objectives, an explanation of the data and information used to determine program effectiveness, and recommendations for continued or improved effectiveness.


Unless otherwise required by law or Board policy specific to a particular program, the Board will review each district program in accordance with the following schedule. The Board may review any program at any time and is not restricted to the schedule or programs in this policy.
