7310 - Standards Adoption


Grand Island Public Schools recognizes that the curriculum of the school dis­trict must be organized in such fashion as to provide and insure equitable opportunities for students of different aptitudes, personality characteristics, and viewpoints. Standards based education is critical to teaching and learning and must provide measurable quality academic content standards by the dates specified in Part 004 of Rule 10 that are the same as, equal to, or more rigorous than the adopted state standards of the Nebraska Department of Education.

The Board of Education may vote to adopt the academic content standards recommended by the State Board of Education (“State Board”).

If the Board of Education does not affirmatively vote to adopt an academic content standard recommended by the State Board, then the Board of Education will adopt a standard equal to or excess in rigor of the standard recommended by the State Board.

The district Leadership for Learning Team shall be responsible for implementing assessments on the state standards in accordance with the procedures established by the State Board and the Department of Education, including conducting assessments in the same subject areas and the same grade levels as established in the state standards, and the reporting of scores and sub-scores.

The superintendent or designee shall be responsible for implementing standards based education to include collecting, interpreting, and sharing data to identify the district's curriculum needs. This data will also guide long-range curriculum planning and program development.

It shall be the responsibility of the superintendent or designee to inform the board of necessary curriculum changes and revisions and, if needed, to develop administrative regulations for curriculum development and recommendations to the board.
