Curriculum Adoption

Adoption Policy

District Policy No. 2020: Course Design, Selection and Adoption of Instructional Materials outlines the roles and responsibilities for the School Board in the adoption of new educational materials. The policy states: The Board is legally responsible for the adoption of all basic education instructional materials and approval of materials for alternative programs (e.g. special education, career and technical education, alternative schools) used in the district. The primary objective in selecting instructional materials is to implement, enrich, and support the educational programs of the schools. All instructional materials shall be selected in conformance with applicable state and federal laws, goals and/or learning standards of the district and state, and procedures established by the Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment Department.

2018-19 High School Health Textbook Adoption

Battle Ground Public Schools is considering the adoption of “Essential Health,” a health textbook, for grades 9–12, and is inviting the community to provide comments. (Please note: The district is reviewing separate materials for high school sexual health. The community will be invited to comment on the sexual health material later this school year when the review reaches that point in the process.)

Opportunities to review the “Essential Health” textbook include:

  • A curriculum review night will be held 4 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 15 at Maple Grove K-8 School.
  • The textbook is available to review by appointment at the district office; please call (360) 885-5389 to make an appointment.

Please note that the “Essential Health” textbook is copyrighted, so you cannot duplicate, photograph, or remove any of the materials from the review space. Feedback can be submitted online. The last day to provide comments is January 25.
