New Instructional Materials in K-8 Mathematics
In March, the district convened a cohort of 54 Mathematics teachers, principals, assistant principals and AEAs to conduct an instructional materials evaluation using the IMET (Instructional Materials Evaluation Tool) of current instructional products in grades K-8. The curriculum adoption committee evaluated 16 products in total, and through the IMET, Eureka Math emerged as the certified front-runner towards a recommendation for district adoption. Our Board of Education approved the committee's recommendation on Tuesday, April 10, 2018.
