Educational Programs Leadership Council Mission Statement 

    The mission of the Educational Programs Leadership Council (EPLC) is to provide a continuous review of educational experiences, curriculum, instruction, student assessment results, and program evaluation, guided by the district strategic plan, to ensure all learners are empowered to reach their unique potential.

    What is the Educational Programs Leadership Council?

    The Council is a collaborative decision-making group of students, teachers, administrators, parents, and community members of the Grosse Pointe Public School District.  Charged with the responsibility of serving as an informed advocate of educational excellence, the council has evolved based on the district’s mission and vision since its formation in 1986.  Organization of the Council process involves a systematic flow of ideas, discussion, and action to current and future curriculum and instructional needs. This system balances teacher creativity, school autonomy, stakeholder input and central coordination.  

    The EPLC scope may include, but is not limited to the following:

    • Proposals for new courses or major course revisions

    • Professional development

    • Broad curriculum revision or change

    • Grading policy

    • Assessment and evaluation

    • Instructional materials selection

    EPLC Curriculum Review Committees are formed each year.  An announcement is communicated to all stakeholders to elicit committee membership during the public forum that takes place in early October.
