Duties of curriculum coordinators include compiling state-required surveys, overseeing their districts' testing programs, and analyzing test results. They must also implement state- or federally-mandated curriculum requirements such as Common Core and comply with regulations such as those of the No Child Left Behind Act. They also comply with requirements at local levels, such as school policies on drug and alcohol abuse or specific staff programs.
Those in this position typically work in offices during traditional business hours, but may be required to travel to various schools within their district or state. Often, curriculum coordinators are licensed teachers (or formerly so), but this is not a compulsory requirement. A bachelor's degree is generally required for this position, and applicants with a master's degree may be preferred by some employers. Some employers may also ask that applicants have a valid teaching certificate in their state.
