Curriculum Report Format

Curriculum Report Format


  • These (below) are suggested headings - take out these notes and the notes below the headings.

  • These are “business as usual” reports to assure the board that we are covering all required curriculum areas. Therefore, the report should be brief.

  • The board’s focus is on ends rather than means - on the big picture rather than the detail - on creating the future rather than on the past. (i.e. focus the report on what the students are achieving not on what the teachers or students are doing)

  • The Board Operations Policy delegates responsibility for Curriculum Delivery to the principal, therefore this is the principal’s report to the board.

Trend Analysis
