A Subject Area Committee (SAC) consists of teachers of that subject from each grade level/course and building, as well as a Curriculum Coordinating Council member and an administrator. The SAC surveys current subject area teachers, analyzes the survey results for duplication, gaps and alignment, interviews subject area teachers, then revises/rewrites district curriculum. CLI consultant Stacey Bruton emphasizes that the documents the SAC creates should be considered “living” documents that will change as teachers see the need or as outcomes change.
The English/Language Arts SAC revised/rewrote the K-12 reading curriculum in 2012-2013. K-12 English/Language Arts teachers implemented and validated the new reading curriculum in 2013-14; in addition, the English/Language Arts SAC revised/rewrote the writing, speaking and listening curriculums. In 2014-2015, teachers implemented and validated the writing, speaking and listening curriculums while the SAC focused on assessments and resource selection for reading. In 2015-2016 school year, the SAC finished writing assessments and reviewed English/Language Arts resources. During the 2016-2017 school year, teachers will validate the writing, speaking and listening assessments.
