Curriculum Council Needs YOU!

The Las Virgenes Unified School District is seeking applicants who reside within the district’s attendance area to serve on LVUSD’s Curriculum Council.  Four positions are available, each for a two-year term ending in June 2021.

The deadline for accepting applications is Friday, June 28.  We are seeking candidates who have a strong interest in curriculum and instruction as well as a commitment to supporting the social-emotional needs of our students.  A background in education is preferred, but not a prerequisite for applying.

This is a volunteer position that requires your availability for a monthly meeting for the duration of the 2019-20 and 2020-21 school years.  For those interested in applying, please click the following link for the application: Curriculum Council Application 2019.  If there are any questions, please feel free to email Nina Rawlinson at nrawlinson@lvusd.org.

Following is information which may be helpful to answer your questions regarding the purpose and responsibilities of Curriculum Council members.

  • The Curriculum Council is made up of community members, teachers, administrators, and board members.
  • Community member Appointments to the Council are for a two year period. There are six community members on the Council. Three positions are open per year, on a revolving basis.
  • Successful candidates will have “broad-based” interests, be good listeners, be able to work in groups, and have a strong interest in the education of our students.
  • Members of the Council attend meetings scheduled for the third Wednesday of the month, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. at the District Office.       They may also be asked to serve on a sub-committee to further consider one of the areas of focus the Council has established for the year.
  • The Curriculum Council is an advisory committee which addresses global and specific issues that either directly or indirectly impact the curriculums offered at the elementary, middle and high school levels and then makes a recommendation to the Board of Education. Examples include offering new or more advanced classes, modifying or deleting classes currently offered.
  • The council is not a decision making committee. It makes recommendations to the Board of Education after thoroughly researching and discussing each issue.
