2017-18 Forms, Instructions and Meeting Schedule

Below are the working copies of the 2017-18 forms and instructions to assist you in preparing your curriculum submissions:

Attention Mac users:
The Preview application on your Mac (as of version 5.0.3) which is the default PDF viewer corrupts PDF forms in a number of ways. Preview does not correctly create form field appearances, causing data in fields not to be shown at all, or shown incorrectly. Please install and use Adobe Reader (link is external) prior to using the Curriculum PDF fillable forms. Please be sure to select the correct Mac operating system prior to download.
