Elementary Language Arts Adoption

Explore Materials

Highline Public Schools plans to adopt new materials for language arts--and we want your input! Your voice is important as we select new Language Arts instructional materials for kindergarten through 12th grade.

This past spring our language arts curriculum adoption committees reviewed many curricular tools and narrowed down the options to two finalists: Ready Gen and American Reading Company (ARC) for K-5. 

Your feedback will inform the committee’s recommendation to the school board in February. Materials will be introduced in the 2021-22 school year.

This virtual space allows families and community members to preview curricular materials under review. Please submit feedback using the surveys linked at the bottom of each section.
