About the New Adoption

Throughout the year, a team of teachers from each of our schools have been researching, evaluating, and are now field-testing new Language Arts curriculum for K-12 students. We have narrowed it down to two choices at the elementary, middle school, and high school levels. The curriculum is the materials, textbooks and digital platforms that our students interact with on a daily basis, and that serve to support teacher instruction.

Now we need your feedback. Family and stakeholder input is an invaluable part of the curriculum selection process. We need to ensure that our curriculum serves all of our students equitably, allowing for robust learning while ensuring that our students interact with the materials positively.

To learn more about each curriculum, please watch the video of our community presentation and explore the demo accounts to review the materials from the student’s perspective. To provide feedback, please fill out the survey and share your priorities for our next Language Arts Curriculum by March 21st. 

Please help guide the future of Language Arts Curriculum in DDSD.

The adoption process operates on a seven year cycle. David Douglas School will begin using this new curriculum in the 2022-23 school year.
