THE RELATIONSHIP OF CURRICULUM TO SCHOOL DISTRICT ORGANIZATION.
TURNER, HAROLD E.
THE CURRICULUM IS DEFINED BROADLY AS ALL THOSE EXPERIENCES WHICH STUDENTS ENCOUNTER THAT ARE UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICT. SCHOOL DISTRICTS SHOULD BE ORGANIZED INTO LARGE ENOUGH UNITS SO THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO PROVIDE THE NECESSARY EXPERIENCES TO MEET THE NEEDS OF ALL STUDENTS. A GOOD CURRICULUM IS NEVER STATIC BUT IS ALWAYS IN A STATE OF CHANGE. THUS IT IS THE TASK OF THE CURRICULUM DIRECTOR TO CONTROL THIS CHANGE, ALWAYS BEING COGNIZANT OF OUR RAPIDLY CHANGING SOCIETY WITH ALL ITS SOCIETAL PRESSURES AND RESTRICTIONS. THE CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT PROCESS MUST INCLUDE RECOGNITION OF THE IMPORTANCE OF OTHER RELATED GROUPS, AGENCIES, AND INDIVIDUALS TO EFFECTIVELY DEVELOP THE BEST CURRICULUM. THE SUPPORTING SERVICES OF PUPIL PERSONNEL, RESEARCH, AND DATA PROCESSING CAN ASSIST THE INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM IF PROPERLY UTILIZED. COMMUNICATIONS MUST BE KEPT OPEN AND OPERATE FREELY AT ALL LEVELS WITHIN THE PROFESSIONAL STRUCTURE AND ALSO WITH THE STUDENTS, THEIR PARENTS, AND VARIOUS GROUPS AND AGENCIES OUTSIDE THE SCHOOL DISTRICT. A MODEL FOR CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT AND A BIBLIOGRAPHICAL REFERENCE SECTION ARE INCLUDED IN THIS DOCUMENT. (ES)
