2020-2021 Faculty Handbook

Curricular Review and Evaluation

  • Each division conducts curriculum review and evaluation on a three- to five-year cycle or more often if necessary. This review and evaluation is often conducted in conjunction with textbook adoption. Outside agencies review the curriculum in certain program areas.
  • Faculty review and evaluate courses/curriculum using a number of assessment techniques, e.g., changes in state requirements, changes in technology, results of needs assessments, information from advisory committees.
  • The Curriculum Committee and the coordinator of Curriculum Services and Faculty Credentialing annually review all courses and delete those that have not been taught within the last five years, with approval of the appropriate instructional supervisor and the vice president for Academic Affairs. The annual purge must be approved by the president and the District Board of Trustees.
