D6 - Public Hearing to Approve Adoption of Economics with Financial Literacy Textbook

The Instructional Resources Department is seeking the permission to adopt and purchase Economics with Financial Literacy. Teachers met on October 17, 2016 to form the Pre-Selection Committee and this was their first choice from the state list to adopt.

Gap Analysis
The last adoption cycle for Economics was in 2011. A year later, the state attached 109 additional financial literacy standards to Economics for a semester course. Publishers rushed to add materials to what was already packaged; therefore, these standards were not properly aligned or included. This adoption would allow the teachers of Economics with Financial Literacy the ability to have currently aligned curriculum to instruct every senior in the county for this required course.
Previous Outcomes
Economics with Financial Literacy is currently up for adoption 2016-2017. This adoption will be the first of the Social Studies Textbooks to move through the adoption process. This course was determined to be the course with the highest need for curriculum alignment.
Expected Outcomes
The Board will approve the adoption and purchase of the EMC Textbook for Economics with Financial Literacy.
Strategic Plan Goal
Engage community members and teachers to establish their voices as advocates for Clay County students. Establish a deeper understanding of the organization’s curriculum selections.

Instructional Resources is asking the Clay County School Board to approve the adoption and purchase of the newly vetted Economics with Financial Literacy textbook. Teachers met on October 17, 2016 and vetted this publisher along with others to find what they determined the best fit for our student's needs. The District Committee approved the teacher's first choice after reviewing their consensus forms for adoption and purchase.
