Provide Input on the Learning Materials Being Considered for Adoption
During the 2023-24 school year, we will be adopting new materials for the following courses:
- History Social Science
- Advanced Placement United States History
- Advanced Placement Physics C: Mechanics
- Special Education
- Independent Living Skills
- World Languages
- Advanced Placement Spanish Language and Culture
- International Baccalaureate Spanish 1 and 2
As part of the process our selection committees use to determine which materials to recommend for adoption, we are seeking the input of students, families/caregivers, and staff on the materials being considered.
We are offering in-person review opportunities at the dates, times and locations listed below
- Oct. 2 - Dec. 15 in room 18 at Choices Charter School (4425 Laurelwood Way, Sacramento)
- Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. by appointment
- Contact Loretta Naas to schedule an appointment at 916-979-8782 or firstname.lastname@example.org
- NOTE: please do not go to the Choices Charter School Office. Room 18 is located in the westernmost building of the campus, on Laurelwood. It is closer to the cross street of Eastern than to the cross street of Mission. Because the doors facing the street are locked, please enter the building through the gate to the right of the door labeled "14" that you can see from the street.
In addition to the in-person opportunities listed above, many of the programs being considered provide online access for students and families to view the student-facing materials during our selection period. Please see the tables below for access information to view the materials. This review period ends on January 8, 2024.
Guidance for reviewing materials
As you begin to review materials, it may help to focus on one aspect of the materials and then compare that aspect across all of the materials being considered for that course.
For example, you might decide you want to focus on student practice activities in the materials. You can look at the practice activities in one set of materials and then compare that to the activities provided by the other set of materials.
Another approach might be to look at the visuals in one set of materials and then compare those to the visuals used to illustrate concepts and information in the other set of materials being considered for that course.
Or you might decide to look at a specific topic of the course and compare how the two sets of materials introduce and practice that topic. It may be helpful to examine the table of contents for each set of materials in order to identify the topic or topics that are present in the both sets of materials and that you would like to focus on or compare in your review.
After reviewing, please submit your feedback
Whether you join us in person or review online, your feedback is important. In order to collect input from our community to inform the selection process, all who review materials are asked to complete the form below so that we can share your input with the selection committee. Please fill out one form for each set of materials you review.
Access the feedback form here. Remember to submit your input by Dec. 15, 2023.
