NSSD Social Studies Material Review

May 2020

Review Process For Teachers and Parents

Parents and Staff,

The North Santiam School District is currently in the process of selecting new Social Studies Educational materials to respond to the revised Social Studies Standards by the Oregon Department of Education (ODE). A committee of staff from each school has participated in an extensive review process this year. The committee has narrowed the list of materials to 2 publishers at each grade level for teacher and parent input.

The materials and publisher presentations are available for teacher and parent input between May 18th and May 28th on our website (link below). On the website you will find the Feedback Form for community and teachers to provide input on all materials. Responses will be collected until May 28th, and be included with the recommended materials for adoption at the June 18 regular School Board Meeting.

Due to the potential of reduced school funding for the 2020-21 school year, the purchase of materials may be postponed until funding is available. If you have questions contact Dave Bolin david.bolin@nsantiam.k12.or.us or Nicole Duncan nicole.duncan@nsantiam.k12.or.us.
