The curriculum shall carry out the mandates of the State Legislature for instruction in specific subjects and shall conform to the requirements and recommendations of the Louisiana Board of Education as set forth in the publications of the Louisiana Department of Education.


It is the policy of the Washington Parish School Board that there be a basic curriculum to provide for the intellectual growth of all students, kindergarten through the 12th year, so developed that learning experiences and achievement may vary according to individual needs, and give all students a basic body of understandings, attitudes, knowledge, and skills.


This policy provides each student, regardless of his/her occupational choice, with the opportunity to acquire the basic skills, knowledge, attitudes, and understanding needed for living in a democracy.


This policy will ensure that students have the opportunity to develop intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, problem-solving abilities, and aesthetic appreciation during the school years in such a manner that they may be used throughout a lifetime.
