From reader Rick B:
Re: the K-5 Math Adoption. Here's a quick process overview and status update from the trenches:
Math Adoption Committee (MAC) has met three times so far. The SSD
website has some basic info and minutes of the first meeting, but not
for meeting #2 or meeting #3:
these meetings, the committee laid the typical process groundwork,
developed selection criteria and weighting formula for evaluation, and
reviewed the 8 candidate programs. All MAC members are supposed to
complete their reviews and submit score sheets this week for tabulation.
separate questionnaire was created for community feedback, which is on
the tables at the JSCEE library, or can be accessed and submitted online
from the website above. DEADLINE FOR THIS IS TOMORROW if you still
want to weigh in.
The top three programs are to be selected as
finalists by Friday the 10th. Additional copies of these finalist
programs will be ordered from publishers and distributed to ~5 locations
around the city for formal public review and comment during the month
Final selection of a single program will take place by
the end of March, to be submitted to the SB for introduction Apr 23rd
and approval May 7th.
