Curriculum Development - Key for a Vibrant School.
Curriculum development is generally done as a collaborative effort between teachers and administrators. The administrators bring the school or district's goals for a group of students, and the teachers contribute knowledge about the students. There are four stages to curriculum development: design and development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation, and review. For a great school, curriculum development is a constant process designed to create the best learning environment possible for each student.
What is a Needs Assessment

The phase needs to address what is the exact problem and what is an appropriate level of subject appreciation for the student's experience. The first part then comes from asking what administrators think needs to be changed. Understanding this view will help the assessment stage see what the administrators deal with their adult students.
