If you want to learn more about the process for selecting materials and application please attend Review Team Info Session on any of the following dates/times:
Vision and Purpose. San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) is committed to ensuring equitable outcomes for all students. In service of this mission, SFUSD is seeking research and standards-aligned elementary Language Arts core curricular materials to support teachers in facilitating a strong foundation in literacy for all SFUSD students for years to come.
Language Arts Core Curriculum Review Team Overview. SFUSD is seeking a representative team including; PK-5 educators, site leaders, SPED educators, literacy interventionists, instructional coaches, parents and community members to review and select PK-5 Elementary Language Arts Core curriculum. The team will focus its review on three different options; each option “meets criteria” on EdReports and received high rubric scores from the SFUSD Adoption Leadership Team (which also considered alignment to district initiatives around foundational literacy, universal design for learning, and our deeper learning framework). The review team will dive deeper into each of these resources to determine which resources will be field tested by teachers and students during the Spring of 2023 school year and continuing into 2023-2024.
Review Team Member Benefits. This is an exciting opportunity to influence the selection of materials that will support Tier 1 literacy instruction in San Francisco for years to come. Members of the review team will receive training on the SFUSD curriculum selection rubric. Members will have the opportunity to dive deep into resources, hear from vendors, review print and digital materials and collaborate with peers. Members will then share their reflections and recommendations to inform which material(s) move forward to pilot. Members of this team may have an opportunity to participate in the pilot and vote on which curriculum to recommend to the board for a targeted district-wide launch in SY24-25.
**SFUSD Staff Members will be compensated for 23 hours time spent outside the contracted workday.**
