Board of Education Curriculum and Instruction Committee

Mission:  The purpose of the Curriculum & Instruction Committee is to provide additional transparency and oversight when reviewing new curriculum, instructional programs, state, or federal legislation which impacts curriculum, instruction, or school administration, and provide recommendations, as appropriate, to the Board. This monthly board committee meeting will be in addition to the CCPS Curriculum Council that takes place four times a year and the traditional monthly Board of Education meeting.

Executive leadership, with appropriate staff, will officially meet with two assigned Board of Education members monthly to review in advance instructional systemic initiatives. Curriculum development, instructional resources and instructional methodologies will be shared and reviewed prior to the monthly Board of Education meetings. The CCPS Curriculum and Instruction Committee will take place earlier in the month prior to the official monthly Board meeting to provide ample time to inform the Board of items being brought to future meetings for Presentation, Report or Action.

All meetings will take place in the Charles I. Ecker Boardroom, Carroll County Public Schools Board of Education Building, 125 North Court Street, Westminster, Maryland 21157.
