The public is invited to review the proposed elementary school language arts curriculum.  These materials will be considered for adoption by the School Board on May 17, 2018.  If the materials are adopted, students will begin using the new materials during the 2018-2019 school year.  The curriculum includes a formative and summative assessments tied to the grade level standards, a main textbook, novels, and on-line materials.  


These language arts materials for Kindergarten – 5th grade are aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), which are all-inclusive to include literature, writing, speaking, and listening.   The curriculum is also responsive to our diverse learning needs by providing our teachers with tools that will better meet the different reading and writing levels found within each of our language arts classes. 


The curriculum will be available for the public to review at the Gervais District Office beginning April 23, 2018, and ending April 30, 2018.
