CHS Community Post | Seattle Public Schools Continue Math Curriculum Adoption Process: MY MATH to Host a Series of Open Houses

logoOver the past year, the Seattle Public School district has been engaged in a community-wide process to select a new math program for students in grades K-5.  The Seattle School Board directed the Adoption Committee for Kindergarten and Grades 1-5 to select a math curriculum that will align with the Common Core Standards, meet both the state’s college readiness expectations and cultural relevance and accessibility standards.

Last month, the committee announced the four finalists which included My Math, EnVision, Math In Focus and Go Math!

My Math, is hosting a series of open houses at several public libraries in Seattle. Parents, students, and teachers are invited to meet with My Math facilitator Shelley Manweller as she shares her experiences with the new CCSS MY Math curriculum and answer questions from attendees. The open house events are informal and will give community members a chance to further understand how My Math is designed to meet state and federal guidelines.

“We want to engage as many parents and teachers as possible.” said Manweller  “This is an opportunity to answer questions and highlight the strengths of the My Math curriculum. It is my hope that these meetings will make the adoption process a truly collaborative process.”
