This paper is a description of the system which will centralize and make conveniently available information needed for developing and monitoring instructional programs. Emphasis is placed on the long range objectives of providing pertinent data in the following areas: 1) Curriculum and Instruction (PPBES, cost control and cost benefits; testing programs; organizational structure; and human relations programs); 2) Textbook Operation (acquisition and control); and 3) Research and Evaluation. Description of the four stages in implementing this curriculum management system is included. A Prospectus of a design to assist the James Madison Memorial High School in Madison, Wisconsin, in the evaluation of its program outlines one model by which high school and curriculum department personnel can team to conduct program evaluations.
