To create consistency from Kindergarten through Grade Five and leveraging federal dollars to close student skill gaps in reading, the Milton-Union Schools will discuss, consider, and act on adoption of an elementary literacy curriculum during a special meeting on June 30, 2021 at 6:00pm in the Board of Education Office. In following BOE policy and due to the need for an established curriculum, school district staff members identified publishers and materials aligned with the Science of Reading, written by nationally recognized authors, used a matrix to help identify district needs, and supported by evidence-based research to ensure quality.
Once curriculum packages were identified using these criteria, members of the Milton-Union Elementary School Building Literacy Leadership Team (BLLT) conducted a curriculum review, and throughout the process, involved grade level teams, additional teaching staff members, and stakeholders. The BLLT reviewed results and gathered additional feedback from State Support Team 10 personnel. After which, our Student Services Director made a recommendation to adopt Wonders published by McGraw Hill Education before presentation to the BOE.
Before formal action is taken, materials will be on display weekdays at the BOE Office beginning Tuesday, June 22, 2021 through June 29, 2021 between the hours of 8:00am and 3:00pm. Board of Education staff members will make an evaluation form available to visitors for providing narrative feedback upon their review.
