School District Graduation Requirements and 4101-R2, Special Education Students’ Graduation Requirements detail the curricular components of the graduation requirements for the respective groups of students.
Criterion 1.4: Accountability through roles and responsibilities:
Collectively, the nine board policies and two appendices of the Collective Bargaining Agreement are determined by the auditors to meet this criterion. Board Policies 1202, Duties of Individual Board Member; 1301, Adoption and Amendment of Policies; and 1701, Code of Ethics direct the Board of Directors to confine their action to policy making and “not assume responsibilities of administrators or other staff members.” The superintendent’s responsibilities are set forth in several policies. In Board Policy 1302, Policy Manuals, the Board authorizes the superintendent to develop “administrative procedures as are necessary to ensure consistent implementation of board policies” and to “undertake planning...to redesign and improve services, educational programs...” in Board Policy 2003, Planning. The general administration’s responsibilities are clearly outlined in Board

Board Policy 4001, Curriculum directs the superintendent to “develop procedures to insure for periodic revision of the curriculum” and meets this criterion.
Criterion 2.3: Textbooks/resource alignment to curriculum and assessment:
Two of the reviewed policies, Board Policy 4401, Instructional Materials, and Board Policy 4402, District Use of Educator-Produced Instructional Materials provide direction to the administration regarding the selection process and limits the use of educator made materials, respectively. Neither of the policies links the selection of resources directly to the content of the curriculum and/or assessment and, therefore, do not meet this criterion.

Criterion 2.5: Program integration and alignment to curriculum: The auditors found no board policies, regulations, or procedures related to this criterion. 3.
