CDPG Forms

This page provides links to forms used in the curriculum development process. The forms are in MS Word format (except for certain ADHE documents in PDF format) and are in some instances protected for form filling. Word forms may be downloaded, filled in, saved, and used in curriculum processes.

To save to your local computer, right-click on the link to a form and choose “Save Target As . . .” (Internet Explorer) or “Save Link As . . .” (Chrome, Edge, or Firefox).

Note for users of Word for Windows. When you are ready to use the form: If Word opens your form in the Reading view, switch to the Edit Document view to fill in the form.

Use the tabs to find the forms you need.

UCA Curriculum Forms

Note: All curriculum forms underwent a light but comprehensive update in March 2016. As further corrections and updates are introduced, the date of the update will be indicated. Please check this page regularly to ensure that you are using the most up-to-date form.

Compatible with Word for Mac and Word for Windows: In order to provide for use in both Mac and Windows environment, the UCA curriculum forms use cross-platform compatible content controls and are tested in the latest versions of Word for Mac and Word for Windows before being linked here. Filenames of the cross-platform compatible forms include the infix <-cpc->.

Suggestions for successful use of these forms: These forms will work best if you complete them using Word (not Google Docs). Using Google Docs not only reformats headers and footers, but it also changes the size and formatting of actual form fields, in some cases creating a document quite difficult to read. Our suggestion is that you download the form to your local computer, complete all the fillable parts of the form in Word, and save the form. At this point you can print the form for its hard copy journey and signatures; we recommend further, however, that you also save it as a PDF document (thereby freezing the format). The PDF document will retain its format in a digital journey through the curriculum process. We fervently hope—and truly believe—that we will be signing these things electronically one of these days and will, therefore, be able to combine the two journeys.
