Wisconsin ASCD New Directors of Curriculum Program 2014-15
Curriculum directors play a pivotal role in every district. The Director of Curriculum and Instruction (or Director of Teaching and Learning, or Chief Academic Officer, etc.) assumes responsibility for and provides leadership to district teams in the ongoing development and improvement of the entire instructional program of the district. Broad areas of leadership and oversight include curriculum, instruction, assessment, technology, federal title grants, RtI steering team, gifted & talented education, teacher induction/mentor program, and professional development program.
A new or relatively new director of instruction or person recently assigned with curriculum and instruction duties may find the tasks and responsibilities overwhelming. Whether you are new to the role or have taken on new leadership responsibilities, we invite you to join the WASCD
New Directors program to become part of the network of professionals dedicated to improving curriculum, instruction and assessment in the state of Wisconsin. We have designed the program with elements that make it just-in-time, meaningful and personal.
