WESD Seeks Feedback on Science Curriculum Materials

The WESD is in the process of reviewing and adopting science materials to support teachers with instruction that is aligned to the K-8 state standards. The standards are based on three core ideas for knowing science: physical science, Earth and space science and life science. Additionally, the materials will address the science and engineering practices that provide students with authentic science experiences, such as constructing explanations, planning investigations and developing models to make sense of the core ideas of science.

You are invited to provide feedback on these materials during our community display now through July 8 from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the WESD Administrative Center, located at 4650 W. Sweetwater Ave. The Science Curriculum Adoption Committee is also hosting open houses on May 17, May 29 and June 17 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the Governing Board Room at the Administrative Center. Committee members will be present at the open houses to answer questions about the materials. Spanish and Arabic translators will also be on-site at each of the open houses.

If you have questions about the science materials or the process, please contact Paula McWhirter, Director of Curriculum and Instruction, at paula.mcwhirter@wesdschools.org.
