Instructional Materials Adoption Committee (IMAC)

In order to best support our teachers and students during the 2020-2021 school year, the proposed supplemental resource options are designed to support English Language Arts (ELA) instruction in both distance and blended learning models. The need for these supplemental materials to aid our teachers is based on the current lack of standards-aligned ELA instructional materials, the current timeline of the K-5 ELA instructional materials adoption, and the unique situation of planned distance or blended learning during a global pandemic. These supplemental materials will support all teachers and students with shifting pedagogy as the committee moves forward in the adoption process.
