If You Care about K-5 Math in Seattle Public Schools...
...then get down to the John Stanford Center and review the proposed ideas for math.
GIVE US YOUR INPUT! First Phase of Adoption Reviews: Seven new Mathematics programs for Kindergarten through Grade 5 use are on display in the Professional Library on the second floor of the John Stanford Center. These are the textual materials that are being reviewed by our Adoption Committee for potential use by the district in the coming years. You may visit the display of materials any time that the Stanford Center is open between now and January 8, 2014. There are Public Review Forms if you wish to add comments or suggestions for the committee’s consideration.
Please use your voice to help us choose new Math materials for our elementary students. THE NEXT SCHEDULED MEETING OF THE K-5 MATH ADOPTION COMMITTEE IS:
Thursday, December 19, 2013, 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM in the Professional Library of the John Stanford Center for Educational Excellence.
Two things to consider:
- one, at the webpage there is a link to Common Core math. That is a huge consideration if you wonder how materials got picked for this list.
- two, yes, not great timing to say to come down during the busiest holiday season of the year.
