Adopted – 11-16-2006
Revised –
The Board of Education believes that all students should receive a comprehensive education. As such, a defined course of study for elementary, middle and high school students shall be approved by the Board of Education and reflect at a minimum the course content identified in the California Education Code and follow the California Content Standards.

The Board of Education realizes that there are many demands on the use of time during the instructional day. In an effort to assist teachers in securing adequate time to instruct their students, in the core subject areas of Language Arts and Mathematics, the Board requests that the Superintendent develop a regulation that will establish a base line for instructional minutes which will apply to the core subject areas of Reading, Writing and Mathematics.

These instructional minutes are to act as a minimum and follow recommendations noted in the California State framework and Education Code.
