The role of the Curriculum Council is to act as an advisory group on curriculum matters and global issues for the School Board and Administration of the Las Virgenes Unified School District. Its mission is to provide a forum within the District to study, analyze, discuss, and ultimately recommend to the Board and the administration the possibilities and/or alternatives for curriculum matters and global issues in the District. The Council serves the District as the main vehicle to review and reconsider additions, deletions, and changes to the District's curricula.
The DCC is made up of community members, teachers, administrators and board members.
Community member appointments to the Council are for a two year period. There are six community members on the council. Three positions are open per year, on a revolving basis.
The Council meets four times per year, on the third Wednesday of the month, October, January, March and May, from 3:30-5:00pm at the District Office. Meetings are open to the public.
What are some things the Curriculum Council has worked on?
Approval of the first semester of AP Environmental Science for both Agoura and Calabasas High School; approval of a number of new classes including Honors Chemistry; a new American Media class at Indian Hills; Honors Wind Ensemble; IB Textbook Adoption recommendations; Essential Geometry for Special Ed students at the high schools; two pilot programs for Foreign Language Instruction at Willow and Chapparal Elementary Schools; approval of Chinese III language class, etc.
