Dear Creslane Families,
This year, CSD will be adopting new language arts curriculum for K-12 students across the district, designed to meet Oregon’s state educational standards and align between grade levels. Curriculum includes the textbooks, materials, and digital resources that support student instruction. Teams from each school including administrators, classroom and special education teachers, intervention specialists, and English language development specialists have been researching programs from various publishers. Feedback from community stakeholders is a vital part of our selection process. Following a rigorous evaluation process, we are excited to share Creslane’s recommended curriculum from Benchmark Education with our families and are eager to hear your thoughts.
On Wednesday, March 2nd, from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m., we invite you to stop by the Creslane library at 996 W. A Street to view the Benchmark Advance materials in person, ask questions, and share your opinions. We want to be sure our curriculum is accessible and engaging and we value your feedback.
If you are unable to attend in person, this slideshow outlines our review process, highlights key aspects of the Benchmark curriculum, and contains links so you can explore their website, view informational videos, and learn more. After reviewing the materials, please complete this survey to share your thoughts.
Thank you for sharing your perspective and partnering with us as we work to adopt and implement the best possible curriculum to support CSD students’ and teachers’ needs.
