Curriculum adoptions

Battle Ground Public Schools regularly adopts new curricula to replace old/outdated materials or materials that are no longer available due to licensing changes. Committees of teachers, administrators and community members review the options and select a few to pilot.

When the pilots are completed in the spring, there is an opportunity for parents, guardians, staff and community members to offer additional feedback. Finally, the board of directors votes to approve the new curriculum.
