Jeffco Board of Education Approves Changes to Curriculum Review Policies

At the Jefferson County Board of Education meeting on Thursday, Oct. 2, board members voted to accept a proposal from Superintendent Dan McMinimee to revise the district curriculum review procedures.

McMinimee developed his proposal as a response to two proposed board resolutions recommending review of curriculum including AP U.S. History and elementary health courses.

The approved proposal, which would revise district policies IJ and IJ-R, to include a committee made up of students, educators and community members appointed by the board. The district’s chief academic officer would serve as a committee facilitator.  The committee would report directly to the board of education creating a majority and minority report recommendations to the board regarding curriculum.

“The district has policies designed to provide Jeffco students curriculum and resources that are academically challenging and in line with Colorado Academic Standards. These amendments to those policies will give more people, including students, teachers and community members a voice in what is available in our classrooms,” said McMinimee.

The revised curriculum review committee proposal can be seen online.
