The Wichita Falls Independent School District Board of Trustees met on Monday evening to discuss the progress being made on the new locally developed curriculum that replaced the controversial CSCOPE lesson plans.

WFISD Director of Secondary Curriculum Ward Roberts says lots of grade levels and courses are complete and are ready through the end of the 2013-2014 school year.

Roberts says there are 461 documents on the new curriculum that have been posted to the district's website for public view, along with thousands of activities teachers can access through different district resources.

Roberts says there are some areas that are struggling to be completed for different factors like teacher turn-over and teacher's time.

He says the goal is to have the entire locally developed curriculum completed by December.

"I just know that these teachers are working so hard and the curriculum specialists also are just putting in so much extra time," Roberts says. "In addition to their regular duties, they're coming in. It's a monumental task for them and they're working really hard and they really need to be patted on the back."

Parents can give their feedback on the new program by filling out an online form.
