Curriculum Management in 29 School Districts in Northwest Ohio.
Saxe, Richard
Curriculum practices of northwest Ohio school districts are described in this exploratory study. Thirty-one out of 33 superintendents responded to a questionnaire that collected information on the following: administrative responsibility for curriculum management; the curriculum review and management process; public relations practices; curriculum improvement needs; constructive practices; and influences on curriculum. Findings are used to construct a prototype district profile, in which curriculum management occurs by comparing actual curriculum practices to instructional standards and student outcomes. Districts identify reform legislation needs as most pressing and improved teacher involvement as their most important accomplishment. Strongest influences on curriculum, excluding teachers, include state mandates, tests, and textbooks. Information will be used to design a more carefully controlled national study. (LMI)
