Parents of 3rd - 5th Graders--Your Input is Needed!

With the successful completion of our content acquisition process for K-2 ELA resources, we celebrate the enhancements to the revised policy that allowed us to: 

·    Consider a variety of resources, including publisher produced, Open Educational, and locally developed

·    Commit to only the resources, within a publisher series, that we feel best meet our needs, thus building the best and most accessible content possible for our students and teachers while no longer obligating us to the one-size-fits-all model.

·    Obtain digital materials in a format that is supported by CCSD Technology Services so that it is easily accessible to teachers

The next content acquisition process will include 3-12 English Language Arts. As we continue to establish a balanced literacy approach for ELA as outlined in The Cobb Commitment, we will consider resources that support this model and address the needs identified through our needs assessment and district data.  Please take a moment to complete the needs assessment via the link below, as your parent input is welcomed and greatly appreciated.  Surveys must be completed by June 3rd.
