TUSD is looking for feedback from parents and community members about the district’s educational programming.

Parents/guardians and community members are invited to share their experiences Monday, as part of a districtwide curriculum audit.

The audit is part of the Tucson Unified School District’s effort to better understand what is being done well, what can be improved and what the district should move away from. The findings will be incorporated into a five-year strategic plan.

The public feedback portion of the audit will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Tucson High Magnet School, 400 N. Second Ave.

Private interviews will be set up with members of an independent audit team for those in attendance.

The $200,000 audit — being conducted by Curriculum Management Systems, inc. — will cover all grade levels and will determine the curricular and instructional staff capacity of teachers, administrators and the central office. It will also determine the efficacy of existing instructional programs, strategies and intervention services.
