File IL: Evaluation of Instructional Programs

Download

The evaluation of instructional programs shall be a major responsibility of the Superintendent and his/her staff with periodic reports being presented to the Board to enable judgments to be made on the success and/or future of the program.  No instructional program should be considered as the final answer, and all school programs shall be under continuous study by the staff.  It should be borne in mind that instruction is the primary responsibility of the schools, and all other activities are merely subsidiary.  This being the case, the evaluation of the instructional program shall be done with great care and the Board kept informed at all times.
