K-8 Adoptions

Curriculum purchased at the K-8 level is part of a cycle of adoptions led by the State of California.  The state identifies approved lists of curriculum, and then the district in conjunction with the El Dorado County Office of Education identifies curriculum for adoption.  The process is designed to ensure that teachers have meaningful input into the decision making process.  Furthermore, opportunities are provided for parent and public input. 

The following is a list of subjects and titles of adoptions over the past nine years.
