The main objective of this study was to assess the roles played by school curriculum committee in the implementation and improvement of school curriculum in the General Secondary Schools of Habru District, North Wollo - Ethiopia. The subject of the study were 39 curriculum committee members, 67 teachers, a district curriculum expert, and a secondary schools’ supervisor that selected by comprehensive sampling, random sampling, and purposive sampling techniques respectively. To obtain data, questionnaire and interview were used as data gathering interments. Various statistical tools such as percentage, mean values, and grand mean scores were applied to analyze the obtained data from respondents. Accordingly, the respondents’ response revealed that the general secondary schools’ curriculum committee in Habru district has played its roles in implementing and improving school curriculum. It has facilitated staff development for teachers. The committee has also facilitated action research so as to improve classroom instruction. On the contrary, this committee also has showed its weakness in the area of curricular issue. The committee was unable to create a means of getting financial support for its budget allocation, and it was unable to suggest the existing school curriculum or it couldn’t make other groups to comment the school curriculum. Therefore, the school curriculum committee needs to be skilled and oriented about curricular issues by the concerned parties. School administration is expected to support this committee in terms of moral, finance, and stationary materials etc. Furthermore, the district education office in collaboration with zonal education department, or other groups should furnish the committee with adequate financial support.
