Public Invited to Review Proposed Instructional Materials

Dec 12 2017

The public is invited to review instructional materials that have been proposed for use in South Carolina’s public schools.

The virtual public review includes three programs that school districts have requested be evaluated for possible state adoption. In January/February 2018, the recommendations for these materials will be submitted to the State Board of Education (SBE) by the SBE appointed Instructional Materials Review Panels.

The three district-requested programs by subject area are listed below:

Chinese Language Arts and Literacy Immersion Program, K–8
Publisher: Better Chinese
Program: Better Immersion Classroom Set, Levels S and 1–8

French, 6–12
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Program: Bien Dit!

Spanish, 6–12
Publisher: National Geographic/Cengage Learning
Program: Exploremos!

The public will have digital access to the three programs from December 11, 2017, through January 9, 2018. The publisher-provided links to the materials and the link to the form to submit public comments are posted online at https://goo.gl/d6NCo3.

The SBE will receive the public’s comments before a final decision is made on adopting the instructional materials.
