Blueprint Courses as Curriculum Repository

Hello all,


Next year, we're looking to use Blueprint courses to host our curriculum. So for example, we would have a blueprint course for Geometry and then that Blueprint would feed all Geometry courses, including honors and college prep. At the beginning of the year, the blueprint would be linked to the sections for the course syncing down only.


The issue is that as we develop this blueprint, we would love to have two.....The top level would be the MASTER district blue print that only a small group of folks have rights to. This is where the master curriculum would reside including teacher resources  and modules containing units with assignments, outcomes,  content etc.


 In the first year as we develop the curriculum, we would like the Geometry teachers to be able to collaborate on a Blueprint course, contribute their content to it. Then meet as a curriculum review team and decide what gets pushed up to the District Blueprint for use the following year.


As far as we know, we can't have nested Blueprints, levels of content. We've used master courses the last two years but we've had a tough time with them.. (teachers leave mid-year and unlinking from the gradebook is a nightmare.)


Does anyone have any thoughts on doing this most efficiently? It would nice to not have to link and unlink Blueprints and stop using master courses.
