Silverman, Bob, Ed.; Gorsuch, Marjorie
This document reports responses from Alaska's 54 school districts to a Department of Education survey on curriculum, instruction, and assessment. The first section provides general information about the school districts' responses in those three areas, including information on curriculum guides, graduation requirements, student assessment programs, and district compliance with planning and evaluation components of curriculum regulations. District responses to specific questions dealing with state curriculum regulations and the curriculum review cycle are displayed, and a second section features information on the targeted area of interdisciplinary education. Appended (the bulk of the document) is information on the elementary and secondary curricula; graduation requirements; tests used; compliance with regulation requirements; curriculum review cycles; perceived curriculum, instructional, and assessment strengths and needs; interdisciplinary initiatives; resources needed; practices; and obstacles in each district as well as district and Department of Education contacts and information on the MERITS program.
