The following organizational structures have been extracted from Janet Hale's PowerPoint presentation "Mapping the Curriculum: Curriculum Mapping Intra-Organizations and Actions Plans," slides 7-18. These suggested organizational structures and roles may be helpful when a district and school implements curriculum mapping (CM).
- Serves as the liaison between district (all schools) administrators; collective CM intra-organizations; and CM Consultant/Trainer, if applicable.
- Coordinates the CM initiative's implementation and ongoing professional development needs.
- Takes on the responsibility of becoming one of the district's CM â€œresident experts.â€
- Collaboratively develops, revises, and publishes CM District Yearly Action Plan with input from collective CM intra-organizations/administrators.
- Responsible for carrying out the district's CM multi-phase implementation and ongoing accountability and progress monitoring.
- A team of approximately five to seven people who have a high interest in curriculum design, and an understanding of administrative insight into the district's curriculum issues and demands. These team becomes the district's "resident experts" in all aspects of CM implementation and application.
- Serve as the district's lead CM trainers and facilitators.
- Attend all CM Cabinet meetings, and when appropriate, CM Council meetings.
- A district-based representative group (member size per school site will vary depending on site's teacher population) consisting of CM Coordinator, CM Cadre, administrators, technology support, and teachers representing the diversity of all grades and curricular areas in the district. The CM Cabinet members become confident in all aspects of CM implementation, components, and processes during the prologue.
- Each school-site in the district creates and maintains its own CM Council with support from the other CM intra-organizations and CM Coordinator.
- A CM Council consists of teachers, technology support, and/or administrators that represent all grade levels and content areas within the school site (usually a ratio of one CM Council member to every five to six teachers/staff members) and becomes confident in all aspects of CM implementation, components, and processes.
- Each CM Council member assists a small-group of five to six, mixed-group staff members in their initial and/or ongoing learning of CM and related components and processes."
