LEADERSHIP COUNCILS AND NETWORKS

Curriculum Councils are created to provide a meaningful way for educators to network and receive information relevant to specialized content area and/or roles.

Regular job-alike and content curriculum council meetings are held to share best practices, provide a support network for addressing issues, and serve as a communication conduit for state initiatives and information related to the content area.  Annually, each district identifies one or two staff members who hold leadership/decision making roles to serve as members of each council.
