  • Adoption Process

  • Step 1:

    All teachers have 12 possible opportunities (see right) to preview instructional materials.  Teachers will rate materials using the textbook screening document, and indicate their top choices.

  • Step 2:

    The top vendors will be invited back to give 90 minute presentations to admin and department heads/teacher leaders.

  • Step 3:

    A final decision is reached by the group, and then the materials we presented before the board before purchasing for next school year.

  • Tips

  • 1.  Give yourself multiple opportunities to view the materials, since we will have them for the next 8+ years.

    2. Be sure to leave feedback/comments about each vendor so the group can make an informed decision.

    3. Encourage all science teachers at your site to participate!
