St. Johns County School District, in compliance with Florida Senate Bill 864, has provided a list of the science instructional materials being considered for adoption. These materials are being made available for review by parents and will follow instructional materials cycle specified by the state.
Florida adopts instructional materials for those specific courses within a selected subject area on a rotating basis. The Florida Department of Education publishes specifications. These specifications outline the courses, as well as the standards materials, must meet. This year, the district is adopting science textbooks. Detailed information is available on the FLDOE website at http://www.fldoe.org/academics/standards/instructional-materials/.
The textbook adoption process includes teachers and parents. If you are interested in serving on the Review Committee, please contact the School Advisory Council (SAC) chairperson at your school.
