dc.description.abstract This research study, based on 15 research questions, described demographic information, career patterns and career goals of 156 of Indiana's public school curriculum leaders. The two most common titles for curriculum leaders were curriculum director and assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction. Significant associations were found in three areas: respondents with the highest degrees and those who had moved to the curriculum director's position from specific educational professions identified certain career goals; curriculum directors who planned to retire from their current positions chose curriculum as their ultimate career goal. Comparisons to Malone's (1999) study of Indiana's superintendents were included. Curriculum directors were evenly divided men and women, were 96% Caucasian, had a mean age of 51 years, and represented all sizes of school districts. en_US
