A Summary of the Process
These materials were originally released for public review in October 2022. SDPC announced the opportunity for public review HERE. At the end of January, these materials were presented to educators in the state textbook caravan in Columbia. Afterwards, schools began receiving their adoption preview kits during February and identified teachers serving on the school's selection committee. In early March, school selection committees finalized their review and recommended their top two selections. The district released the 2nd opportunity for parent/community review of these materials and requested feedback as district representatives used school and community feedback to provide the SDPC School Board with a final recommendation for SDPC selections. These will be presented to the board at the board meeting on Monday, March 27, for approval. On March 28, SDPC uploads selections to the state textbook ordering system so that schools will be able to preorder these materials when the window opens in late April or early May. After preorder, publishers begin printing materials, shipping textbooks, providing professional learning for teachers, and working with districts to upload any instructional technology that accompanies the textbook adoption.
