Would you like to have a say in selecting new materials for teaching mathematics in grades 6-8? If so, please apply to join the “math adoption committee” no later than March 10. Seattle Public Schools is just beginning the process for evaluating new instructional materials and forming a committee that will begin working in March. It is the district’s goal to have new instructional materials in use during the 2018-19 school year.
In forming an adoption committee, our hope is to select members who represent the diverse perspectives and experiences of Seattle Public schools, students, and families. The committee will be comprised of parents/guardians, community members, teachers and principals representing a range of buildings and programs, and the Seattle Public Schools Adoption Committee coordinators.
Committee members will be expected to:
- attend ALL scheduled meetings
- assist in reviewing prospective materials
- communicate to their school community
- serve as a representative of their school community
