The district has announced public meetings to "share" information about curriculum alignment in our high schools. (I really doubt they will change their plan but you can try.) From the press release:
The high school curriculum alignment projects will result in aligning high school Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies and World Languages core classes to college-ready standards, revising course offerings in academic subjects to better prepare students for college, careers and life and providing professional development for teachers to support their delivery of the aligned curricula.
Seattle Public Schools instructional leaders will discuss our alignment work and provide more information about the upcoming instructional materials adoption for high school Language Arts courses, to be followed by adoptions for World Languages and Social Studies for 4th and 8th grades.
So there you elementary and middle school parents; it's coming your way as well.
Now don't laugh at the timing of the first two meetings but here's the list:
Monday, Nov. 23
Rainier Beach High School
8815 Seward Park Ave. S.
Tuesday, Nov. 24
West Seattle High School
3000 California Ave. S.W.
Monday, Nov. 30
Ballard High School

Tuesday, Dec. 1

I know, Thanksgiving week, who has anything else to do?
