Parent/Community Involvement Opportunities – K-12 Social Studies Instructional Materials Adoption

Parent/Community Involvement Opportunities – K-12 Social Studies Instructional Materials Adoption

Brevard Public Schools (BPS) is inviting parents/community members to provide input for the selection of State Standards aligned instructional materials. There are four opportunities for parent/community input. Brevard Public Schools (BPS) is committed to fostering the kinds of high-quality learning experiences we know students need to ensure they have a solid K-12 Social Studies education. The upcoming instructional materials adoption cycle for social studies is an opportunity to select high-quality instructional materials that support these kinds of learning experiences beginning in the 2024-2025 school year. Participating in the instructional materials review process is a powerful opportunity for teachers, administrators, parents, and community members.
