(a) The curriculum of a local school may be supplemented through the use of correspondence course materials approved by the commissioner. This use is not grounds for shortening the day in session, as prescribed by AS 14.03.040 , for any student.
(b) The governing body of a district shall comply with the statutes and regulations of the state in providing the educational program described in the plan developed under 4 AAC 05.070(a) .
(c) Repealed 6/11/95.
(d) The governing body of a district shall adopt, in the manner required by AS 14.14.100 (a), a curriculum that describes what will be taught students in grades kindergarten through 12. The curriculum
(1) must contain a statement that the document is to be used as a guide for planning instructional strategies;
(2) must contain a statement of goals that the curriculum is designed to accomplish;
(3) must set out content that can reasonably be expected to accomplish the goals;
(4) must contain a description of a means of evaluating the effectiveness of the curriculum; and

(e) The governing body of a district shall provide for the systematic evaluation of its curriculum on an ongoing basis with each content area undergoing review at least once every six years. This requirement does not relieve a school district of the independent annual planning and evaluation requirement imposed by 4 AAC 05.070.
(f) The governing body of a district shall provide for the annual assessment of academic progress made by students in attendance in the district using a test, administered at appropriate grade levels, that is appropriate for the grade tested, and that is designed to assess student skill level or achievement in at least reading and mathematics. The test required by this subsection must be approved by the commissioner before it is administered for the first time.
(g) The governing body of a district shall ensure that each school provides the educational program described in the plan developed under 4 AAC 05.070(a) and the curriculum required by this section.
