INSTRUCTIONAL GOALS                        6010

The focus of the Meriden Public Schools is on the student. The educational development of the student is the central concern of the Board’s policies and the administrative regulations. While the teacher is the key figure in carrying out the district’s responsibility in the educational process, the teacher alone cannot effectively achieve all the objectives of education. The purpose of the various administrative departments is to provide teachers with a variety of tools and specialized assistance in developing and carrying out programs which will meet the needs of students. The Board will seek to provide the facilities, personnel, equipment, and materials necessary for the education of all students for whom it is responsible.

It shall be the responsibility of each school’s staff, under the direction of the principal, to have specific educational objectives consistent with the Board’s educational goals.

The educational goals and objectives of the school system will serve as criteria by which curriculum guides are established, content outlined, learning materials selected, instructional procedures and educational technology developed, and tests prepared.
