Instructional Materials

The Instructional Materials Committee has launched a process to select new materials to support Music, K-8 Science, and Upper-Level Math (Pre-Calculus and higher) instruction.  

Current materials were reviewed, and it has been determined that a new adoption is needed to support current standards and to ensure materials reflect our students and are culturally responsive. Curriculum selections are guided by Board Policy 2020 and Procedure 2020.
