The federal government, state, district, school, teacher and community each play a role in curriculum development, sustainment, and enhancement. The Federal government has the most broad responsibility by evaluating the curriculum that is created by the state and district level. The government does this via standardized testing. The state involves itself with curriculum by deciding what should be taught, and at what grade level. This is prescribed to the district administration. Then the district administration selects from the choices the state gives, and chooses which topics they want to cover. The school and district work together on maintenance issues such as deciding on texts, classroom technology, and when each topic will be covered during the year. It is the ultimate responsibility of the teacher to decide how to facilitate the prescribed lessons. It is the teacher's decision on which materials should be focused on, and what methods they will use to present the lesson. The community plays a role in deciding the curriculum via petitions, budget votes, and paying taxes. They also contribute by helping their children with supplemental activities which revolve around the curriculum.
