Curriculum Leaders' Professional Group

The Curriculum Leaders' Network addresses timely issues related to curriculum, instruction and assessment in PK-12 educational programs. Members pose questions, share resources and find solutions to problems of practice in the leadership of learning for improved student outcomes. 

This network typically convenes on a Friday afternoon each month between September and May; additional opportunities for collaborative thinking and problem solving are made available in response to compelling needs. Regular attendance contributes to lively thinking partnership in each meeting.
