Recognizing the pivotal role that high-quality language arts materials play in developing critical literacy skills and fostering academic success, the District initiated a comprehensive review of available language arts materials for grades K-5. The objective was to identify resources that align with Oregon standards, emphasize core beliefs, and instill a love for reading and writing among students.

Following two years of work by a materials review team, the District recommended EL Education by Imagine Learning to the Board of Directors on January 9. The Board will vote to approve the recommendation to adopt the curriculum at its next regular meeting, February 13.

Community members may visit the District’s Education Center, 520 NW Wall, to review curricular materials and ask questions during two open house events:

  • Wednesday, January 24, 4:00 - 6:00 PM
  • Monday, January 29, 6:00 - 8:00 PM
