Containing recommendations of a 36-person task force, this report establishes a direction for actions that the Virginia Beach, Virginia school division should take to improve the current educational program. Recommendations are presented in four sections. Section 1 (kindergarten-grade 12) discusses curriculum, staff development, and student standards. Sections 2 and 3 (kindergarten-grade 4 and grades 5-8) include descriptions of program directions; programs in language arts, mathematics, science, health, and social studies; and resource, exploratory, and elective programs. Section 4 (grades 9-12) includes discussion of content areas as well as vocational education and specialized studies. Special programs and resource services such as English as a Second Language, gifted education, guidance, library studies, and special education are described in section 5. Three appendices, composing the majority of the text, complete the document. The first appendix provides a program process summary; a summary of staff, student, and community involvement; rosters of the curriculum assessment and development task force and other advisory groups and consultants and a list of school visitations conducted in other state systems; nine tables illustrating results of the curriculum assessment and development senior survey; a copy of the community opinion survey report; and a futures and technology report in chart form. The second appendix, the curriculum foundations report, establishes a basis for curriculum renewal and continuous curriculum development. Finally, the third appendix reports on the use of computers within the school system. (BJD)
