MATH Reflections from DWAST


The middle school textbook adoption process began this week. The committee members will narrow the field of choices from eight to four. On February 13th publishers will present to the committee and then the field will be down to two. Between February 24th and March 6th all teachers will have access to the programs at their sites to review the materials. On February 25th , from 3:30-6pm, at Hilltop High the selected publishers will present their programs to all interested teachers. If you would like to advocate for a particular program then March 4, 2014 from 3:30-5:30pm at the district office will be your chance.
