Brockton Public Schools

School Committee Policy


The primary function of a school program is the instruction of students. All staff activities and efforts shall be directed toward providing a high quality, effective, and ever-improving instructional program.

There are primarily three functions involved in carrying out the instructional program:

  1. Operating Function
  2. Coordinating and Developing Function
  3. Evaluating Function

The operating function involves classroom instruction and building program management. The coordinating and developing function includes monitoring activities (curriculum development), in-service education, and special services. The evaluation function involves data collection and synthesis and establishing future direction.

The Superintendent of Schools, after conferring with the staff, parents and students, will formulate a list of objectives for the impending school year and publicize them, after the approval of the School Committee. Instructional priorities shall be included among these objectives.
