Curriculum Adoption Schedule Revised 
Oregon's State Board of Education revised the curriculum adoption schedule at their June 2018 meeting. 2019-20 is a non-adoption year; that is, the subjects scheduled for adoption in 2019-20 were pushed to 2020-21.

Social Science Adoption Year Results
Grades K-12 teachers review the revised Oregon Social Science Standards during the 2018-19 SY. Because new Social Science texts were adopted for secondary grades in 2015, the District did not  adopt new materials at the 7-12 level at this time. Secondary Social Science teachers reviewed the revised standards and adjusted their instructional plans to align.
Grades 4-5-6 worked with the District Curriculum Office to develop curriculum maps and create planned course statements for the revised Social Science standards at those grades. A curriculum materials proposal was presented to the Board. Pearson's MyWorld Social Studies for Grade 4 and 5 and Pearson's World History and World Geography were approved at the June 2019 meeting. Materials were purchased and will be used in classrooms beginning Fall 2019.
A copy of newly adopted curriculum materials is kept on hand at the District Office for public review.
