The school curriculum team shall establish the programs and methods for implementing a curriculum based on state-approved instructional goals and objectives based on the needs of the individual school with a focus on reading, composition, mathematics, science and technology. The curriculum thus established shall be submitted to the county board for approval or for return to the school for reconsideration.
The school curriculum team may apply through the school's local school improvement council for a waiver from the textbook adoption process established in article two-a of this chapter if, in the judgment of the team, materials necessary for the implementation of such curriculum are not available through the normal adoption process.
The school team may apply for a grant from the state board for the development or implementation, or both, of remedial and accelerated programs to meet the needs of the students at the individual school.
