Science Adoption for Grades K-12

In May 2018, Seattle Public Schools initiated an adoption process for instructional materials to support science in grades K through 12. 

The instructional materials process will follow the Seattle Public Schools Selection and Adoption of Instructional Materials, Policy No. 2015 .

When approved by the Seattle School Board, the new instructional materials will be ready for implementation by the 2019-20 school year.

A timeline and details may be found on the science adoption pages.

SPS Racial Equity Analysis Tool

It is the moral and ethical responsibility and a top priority for Seattle Public Schools to provide Equity Access and Opportunity for every student, and to eliminate racial inequity in our educational and administrative system.

The Racial Equity Analysis Tool lays out a clear process and a set of questions to guide the development, implementation, and evaluation of significant policies, initiatives, professional development, programs, instructional practices, and budget issues to address the impacts on racial equity. The SPS Science Team has completed the Analysis Tool to guarantee an equity lens for the Adoption Process.
