Curriculum Advisory Committee

  • Overview:
    In order to advance innovative course work to ensure that all student will realize their unlimited potential, the Alvord Unified School District has established a Curriculum Advisory Committee (CAC).

    The purpose of the Alvord Unified School District Curriculum Advisory Committee (CAC) is to review and make recommendations on: (a) requests to pilot a new course; (b) results of courses piloted; (c) submitted course attribute changes; (d) proposed substantive changes to approved courses; (e) requests to establish school/college partnerships, and (f) conduct structured audits/reviews of the course of study and provide recommended changes. The CAC may also be called upon to undertake special assignments from the Superintendent that have implication to policy, regulations, or practices that impact student achievement. The Chair of the CAC takes the recommendations of the committee to the Superintendent and the Board of Education. The Chair of the CAC is responsible to communicate the decisions of the Superintendent and Board of Education and provide direction on those decisions.
