K-8 Adoption

K-8 Adoption

California Instructional Materials Adoption

The California State Board of Education will take action to adopt new science instructional materials for K-8 in November 2018. A complete timeline of the adoption process is available from CDE.

A list of companies submitting materials for adoption by California is also available from CDE. The list includes links to access the programs and/or more information about the materials being submitted. A total of 33 programs were submitted. The "Report of Findings" generated from the deliberations of the Instructional Materials Reviewers is also available.

It is important to remember, that even if selecting a program from the state-adopted list, a local review of the materials is strongly recommended. Please visit the White Paper, Resources for Reviewing, and Williams Act pages for more information.
