Policy Rec: Curriculum Guides and Course Outlines--the Supt. should be responsible.

I recommend that we revise the policy's passive language and assign responsibility to an actor.  So, "Curriculum guides shall be developed . . ." becomes "The Superintendent will oversee . . .".   What do you think?  Your comments are much appreciated.  

I recommend we change Policy IGE (at http://www.tusd1.org/contents/govboard/SectI/IGE.html) to read as follows:
