• Supplemental Science Materials Selection Timeline

    The timeline for the Supplemental Science Materials selection is listed below. Please share with eligible
    Science staff – Grade 5 Science, Grades 6-8 Science, Biology, Chemistry, IPC, and Physics. Should you
    have Science staff selected to serve on the District Textbook Adoption Committee, please keep in mind
    the date* that they may be asked to participate will occur during the school day. The Teaching and
    Learning Division will pay for substitutes and provide lunch for participating teachers. A manual will be
    provided with additional information to assist in the process. As a final reminder, we ask that if you allow a
    publisher to present to your science teachers, that all publishers be afforded the same opportunity.
