Dr. Mary Anderson, executive director, presented information and requested approval of the Language Arts curriculum purchase in the amount of $732,766 over two budget cycles.
The curriculum and review process for curricular areas in Stillwater Area Public Schools is a five-year process. Year one is the study and evaluation phase, year two committee members evaluate and make recommendations, year three is the implementation year, and years four and five we monitor and evaluate assessment data, teacher and parent evaluations, and recommend any on-going training for new and current teachers.
The new Language Arts curriculum materials that will be purchased also address the Minnesota Department of Education Language Arts Standards which is required to be implemented no later than the 2012-2013 school year.
