School Board adopts new elementary math program
With a 4-3 vote, the Seattle School Board on June 4 approved Math in Focus as the new textbook for kindergartens through 5th-graders.
The vote came after a lengthy discussion about the merits of both Math in Focus and enVision Math, which was the program recommended by the Math Adoption Committee.
The new textbooks and materials will be ordered this month and put to use in the 2014-15 school year. Click on the link for more information on the math adoption process.
