WCSD Seeks Public Input on New AP Textbooks

Posted: Updated:

From the Washoe County School District:

The Washoe County School District (WCSD) Textbook Adoption Committee has selected finalists for new Advanced Placement World Language textbooks. As part of the adoption process, the committee is soliciting public input prior to providing final recommendations to the Washoe County School District Board of Trustees.

The textbook materials will be available for public viewing and comment at the Regional Center for Teaching and Learning at 380 Edison Way in Reno on the following dates:

*Thursday, Jan. 23 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
*Friday, Jan. 24 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
*Saturday, Jan. 25 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

An evaluation form will be available for leaving comments or concerns.

"Soliciting public review is part of the School Board Policy and Administrative Regulation 6181, and it's important for the community to provide input to the Textbook Adoption Committee," said Maria Munoz, Washoe County School District instructional materials program coordinator. "The materials are available for public viewing so that parents and other interested members of the public can have a chance to see and review the potential AP World Language texts used in WCSD advanced placement world language classes beginning next fall. Their comments and opinions may represent a different perspective than those of educational professionals, and it's important that we provide all input to the trustees as they make their decision."
