The Cozad Instruction and Curriculum Committee, referred to as "CICC", is a representative group of district personnel that advises the Board of Education, through the Superintendent, in matters concerning curriculum, instruction and professional development. CICC will serve as a liaison between certified personnel and the Board of Education.

The major functions of CICC will be to:

  • Establish and coordinate a systematic, on-going process for designing curricula, selecting instructional resources and/or developing and selecting assessment materials.

  • Act as the communication link between the Superintendent and curriculum Sub-Committees.

  • Promote continuity and coordination between buildings, departments, and grade levels within the district.

  • Appoint Sub-Committees to study curricular concerns of certified personnel, evaluative teams, site councils, and the Board of Education, and to assess educational issues and report information and opinions to CICC.

  • Provide staff development needs as the Professional Development Council (PDC).

  • Annually review and amend, if needed, these Bylaws.

Through this committee, the District directly aligns the local curriculum to the Nebraska State Standards. Below you will find the District's Curriculum at a Glance for all discipline and grade levels. This curriculum is reviewed annually. Below you will find each grade level and subject level "Curriculum at a Glance". These documents provide a one-page overview of the content objectives in each strand for all class levels.
