Curriculum Adoption: Review Materials

Provide your input on new curriculum options

Battle Ground Public Schools is evaluating new curriculum materials that will be used to teach social and emotional learning, English language arts and social studies. Earlier this year, committees of teachers, administrators and community members reviewed the options and selected the top four for each category.

*No part of any publications may be reproduced, stored in a retrieval system, or transmitted in any form or by any means, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording, or otherwise, without written permission of the publisher.

Next steps

Using the input provided by staff, families and the community, the committees will narrow the top four options to the top two. The top two curricula in each subject will be piloted in schools this winter and spring. Battle Ground Public Schools’ board of directors will vote on the curriculum in spring 2023.

Review of new textbook

Dec. 5, 2022

You are invited to provide input on a potential new economics textbook. “Contemporary Economics, 4th Edition” would be used to teach economics in grades 11 and 12 if approved. The course provides a graduation credit in social studies or occupational education.

The textbook can be viewed at CASEE A, 11104 N.E. 149th St., Brush Prairie. Please call Paula DeLano at 360-885-5438 to make an appointment. Some appointments may be available during winter break. The last day to provide feedback is Jan. 3.

Because the textbook is copyrighted, it cannot be removed from the review space, duplicated or photographed.

The district’s board of directors will vote on the textbook at its Jan. 9 meeting.
