(a) This chapter sets out statewide goals for public education, and adopts, by reference, content standards for several subject areas, and performance standards for reading, writing, and mathematics.
(b) The purposes of the goals are to
(1) encourage the school districts to envision and develop local educational plans that are unique to each district's culture, geography, and climate, and that will graduate world-class students;
(2) empower the public with the knowledge that the skills and subjects included in this chapter are of great importance to education so that the public can participate in local educational planning with more authority and effect; and
(3) set standards against which the public, school districts, teachers, and students can measure the quality of education that students receive.
(c) The content standards and goals referred to in this chapter identify student abilities that evidence mastery of a subject area. The content standards are not graduation requirements or components of a curriculum, but they establish what constitutes excellent educational results. The content standards and goals are intentionally broad to allow a school district to tailor its curriculum to the conditions, goals, and expectations of its community. A school district board, working with the public, teachers, and students shall choose and implement effective teaching strategies so that its students will achieve high performance in a subject area. These strategies should be reflected in
(1) the development, selection, and implementation of the school district board policies;
(2) the curriculum and assessment required by 4 AAC 05.080; and
(3) teaching methodology, textbooks and instructional materials, and management practices.
