A Project To Improve the Administration and Management of the Curriculum in Kentucky. Final Report.
This report describes the methods and results of a 29-month project to make available to Kentucky's school children the best and most recent programs and techniques in innovative teaching through an improvement of curriculum management. The project identified and examined eight management areas and provided consultative service to local district administrative personnel in an effort to improve the management of the rescheduled school year, grade level organizational plans, differentiated staffing patterns, administrative and instruction staff development programs, flexible-modular scheduling plans, nongraded-continuous progress plans, computer technology programs for education, and instructional media center plans. To improve the local school district administrators' knowledge and expertise, the project director utilized district seminars, consultative services to local district personnel, mobile seminars, statewide conferences, summer institutes, and research projects. Included in the appendix is a directory of recommended consultants in the area of curriculum improvement, a model for a 9-week semester school, two plans on individualized instruction and flexible student progression, and a model for assessing educational success in Kentucky's schools.
