|Revised Instructional Materials Adoption Schedule - January 2014|
|At the January 2014 meeting, the Oregon State Board of Education approved state staff recommendations to begin work revising current state laws relating to the state review of instructional materials. The goal of a revised process is to better support Oregon educators in selecting high quality student and teacher materials in all subjects. A new process would aim to examine electronic and open source materials in addition to traditional print options.|
The State Board also adopted a new mathematics review criteria for materials aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). These criteria will support the local or regional review of available mathematics materials aligned to the CCSS. Current laws allow for the local review of materials at any time while the state review process is being revised. Use the link below to find the adopted version of the CCSS Mathematics criteria.
In the coming months, staff at the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) will take the following actions to support Oregon school districts:
The State Board of Education is responsible for maintaining a review cycle at the state level, where the next mathematics review was moved to 2016 after a new review process can be put into place. The revised state review of materials can be found in the table below.
2014: English Language Proficiency (ELP)** - in classroom by fall 2015
2015: Science** - in classroom by fall 2016
2016: Mathematics - in classroom by fall 2017
