Textbook Review

  • 2017-2018 ... SCIENCE REVIEW ... While a review of various options for Science instructional materials is ongoing, the district will issue a BLANKET ADOPTION with the state in March/April 2018, allowing for any future purchases that may be required, but not making a decision to purchase from one single vendor, one curriculum, or one medium.  As a 1:1 technology-enabled district, Maryville teachers use a wide variety of instructional resources to meet the ever-changing needs of their students, with the vast majority being online or at least digital.  Locking-in to a five or six-year contract with a single book is seldom the option of choice for most educators in this LEA.
     
     
    UPDATE 2014 (Public Chapter 981) requires school districts to include parents on their local textbook review committees:
    "Local boards of education shall appoint review committees to review the textbooks and instructional materials proposed for adoption and shall make their adoption upon recommendations of such committees. These committees shall be set up by grade and subject matter fields and composed of teachers, or supervisors and teachers, and parents with children enrolled in the LEA at the time of appointment to a committee."
