Staff Invited to Offer Feedback on Curricula Proposals
This message was emailed to the MCPS community on Monday, Dec. 3. Don’t miss your chance to offer feedback on the curricular proposals.
Dear MCPS Community:
Over the past several weeks, a team of 118 staff members reviewed the proposals received to our Request for Proposal for English Language Arts and Mathematics Curricular and Instructional Materials for Elementary and Middle School. Based on their recommendations, three elementary and two middle school English Language Arts curricular products, as well as two elementary and three middle school Mathematics curricular products, are being considered for implementation in Montgomery County Public Schools.
For each product, vendors have been asked to create a presentation for teachers, staff, parents and the community to view. Each presentation is available in English and Spanish and can be accessed from the MCPS Curriculum Review – Vendor Presentations webpage until Sunday, December 9, 2018. In addition to the presentation, there is a feedback form that asks your opinion on the following areas:
- Student Experience: Does the product actively engage students and differentiate instruction to address the learning needs of all students?
- Teacher Experience: Does the product support all teachers to plan and deliver high quality instruction to meet the learning needs of all students?
- Parent Experience: Does the product provide parents/guardians with information about the curriculum and enable parents/guardians to support student learning outside the classroom?
To be included in the curriculum selection process, all feedback forms should be submitted by December 9, 2018. Instructions for completing the forms can be found on the MCPS Curriculum Review – Vendor Presentations webpage.
We look forward to receiving your input on this very important endeavor.
Maria V. Navarro, Ed.D.
Chief Academic Officer
