Proposed Mathematics Textbooks on View
Mathematics textbooks for kindergarten through calculus are available for public review and comment from now until December 21, 2011. Books for math instruction ranging from kindergarten through Algebra II will be available in the Professional Library of the Edward. L. Kelly Leadership Center, at Chinn Park and Bull Run Regional Libraries, and at the following school libraries: Ashland Elementary School, Battlefield High School, Ellis Elementary School, Forest Park High School, Fred Lynn Middle School, Lake Ridge Middle School, Occoquan Elementary School, Penn Elementary School, Pennington Traditional School, Saunders Middle School, Signal Hill Elementary School, Swans Creek Elementary School, Victory Elementary School, and T. Clay Wood Elementary School. Upper level books for mathematics electives above Algebra II will be available at the Edward L. Kelly Leadership Center, located at 14715 Bristow Road in Manassas.
During the textbook adoption process, the Mathematics Office convenes teachers, administrators, School Board appointees, and parents who are tasked with evaluating textbooks. Feedback is solicited from all county schools and from the public. Citizens’ comments will be collected and considered by the textbook adoption committee as they prepare their recommendations to the School Board this winter. The final adoption report is planned for presentation to the School Board for information and approval in February 2012.
