Public feedback opportunity for instructional materials adoption

This year, San Juan Unified is piloting science, health and Spanish instructional materials for possible adoption. 

In science, the district is adopting instructional materials for the following courses:

  • Biology: the Living Earth
  • Chemistry in the Earth System
  • Physics of the Universe

The district is also adopting materials for the high school health course and Spanish 1, 2, 3, and 4, including the Spanish 1a and 1b courses offered at some middle schools.

We value stakeholder input on the materials being considered and we are pleased to invite you to preview the materials and share your feedback. There are three options for previewing materials:
