PUBLIC MAY VIEW POTENTIAL NEW TEXTBOOKS

AND OFFER FEEDBACK

 

MARION COUNTY – Marion County Public Schools is adopting new English Language Arts (ELA) textbooks for all grade levels to be used starting next school year.

 

Review committees including teachers, parents, and community members recently considered various materials and made recommendations to Superintendent Dr. Diane Gullett.  Following her presentation to School Board members this morning, the window for public input is now open.

 

Anyone interested in reviewing the textbooks and related materials may do so at this link.  Public comments can then be presented in person at the March 9 School Board meeting starting at 5:30PM.

 

School Board members will vote on the recommended materials at their March 23 meeting.  Following that, a 30-day objection window opens to the public.

 

For more information, contact the Instructional Materials department of Marion County Public Schools at 352.236.0525.
