2013-2014 Math and English Language Arts Instructional Materials Review

The Board of Elementary and Secondary Education has delayed the formal textbook adoption process until after the State's examination of the state screening process and report to the legislature due February, 2014.  In the interim, to support districts with curricular choices, the Department will be implementing an informal and ongoing review process of ELA and math materials in preparation for the 14-15 school year.


The Department of Education is facilitating an informal review of digital instructional materials and benchmark assessments for mathematics and English Language Arts October 2013 through April 2014.

All submissions are welcome. Priority will go to submissions representing the following areas: 

  • Mathematics full courses/curriculum,

  • English language arts:

  • K-12 ELA and mathematics benchmark assessments.

As reviews are completed, annotated results will be made available as curricular resources through the classroom toolbox on the LDOE website.
