A Note About the 2018-2019 School Year

  • After six months of review and evaluation of over 180 titles, the Board of Trustees of Coeur d’Alene School District has chosen StudySync for grades 06-08 and My Perspectives for grades 09-12 distributed by Pearson for whole group English language arts instruction for the next 6 years.

    This decision represents our district’s largest textbook adoption since 2003 and represents a collaboration where multiple grade levels came together to ultimately recommend StudySync and My Perspectives. In addition, both titles are the only titles to receive a perfect score from EdReports, an independent non-profit that ranks instructional materials on college and career-ready standards and other indicators of high quality.

    As the 2018-2019 school year will be the first year with these new instructional materials, our district does not currently have its own curriculum documenting how we will incorporate these materials into instruction in order to meet standards. Instead, by default, we will use the scopes-and-sequence provided from the publisher until our content teachers gather near the end of the first semester. The use of the default scope-and-sequence will continue until the Board approves our district’s design. At that time, we may be able to add titles that match the thematic units of the core curricula. Additional supports through in-person or online professional development will be offered during collaboration or pull-out.
