The public is invited to review the proposed social studies curriculum.  These materials will be considered for adoption by the School Board on May 16, 2019.  If the materials are adopted, students will begin using the new materials during the 2019-20 school year.  The curriculum includes a digital component that students may access on their Chromebooks. 


These social studies materials for 6th – 8th grade are aligned with the new social studies standards.   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 classes. 


The curriculum will be available for the public to review at the Gervais District Office beginning April 19th – May 15th, 2019.


If you have questions about these materials, please contact the Gervais School District Office at 503-792-3803 extension 2010.
