After months of incredibly hard and thorough work on the part of our stellar curriculum team – along with critical input from you, your teachers, parents and the community, the new ELA curriculum has been announced!   Expeditionary Learning (EL).  EL is an open-source literacy curriculum written by and for teachers. It was created to address the shifts in the Common Core standards as well as address the future needs of students competing in a global community.  The county will roll this out with third grade in 2017-2018 and 4th the following year.  5th grade will adopt the resource in 2019-2020.
