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.

review each district program in accordance with the following schedule. The Board may review any
