Setting the Goals
Staff will use profile data to determine if curriculum alignment is a strength or an area of need. If the curriculum is appropriately written and aligned, no further work needs to occur in this area within the current Continuous Improvement Process.
Areas of Need
Through the same process, the profile phase may identify areas of need in curriculum alignment.
Priorities to Address
Priorities for curriculum alignment can be determined by utilizing the following Guiding Questions:
- What area(s) of the curriculum does the data indicate is a priority for curriculum alignment?
- How will curriculum alignment in the identified area(s) lead to improved student learning?
- Is it necessary for curriculum alignment to become an improvement goal or simply a strategy to address an existing goal?
