Curricular Control: Legal Pointers for Public Schools

Authored By: NSBA, Date Published: 7/15/2010, Page Count: 38, Product#: 278960
The state has considerable power to regulate curricular matters. Most state legislatures have traditionally delegated to local districts the power to establish curricular requirements, adopt materials, and set grading practices. However, recent education reforms focusing on standards, assessment, and accountability have spurred some states to reclaim some of this authority. No matter whether these requirements are imposed by the state or the local school district, students attending public schools must comply with them unless the law allows some exception, e.g., accommodation of a disability or religion.
