CCPS Approved Texts
The Text Adoption Process
The Secondary English Language Arts Department has a deliberate and comprehensive text adoption process. The Materials Adoption Committee meets annually to review the proposed texts. Members of the committee vet the proposals, considering factors such as text complexity, alignment to standards, cultural diversity, and community values. Proposed texts must be approved by three teachers before they are adopted into the Secondary ELA Curriculum. Some of our texts contain mature content, and in those cases, teachers will send a parent permission letter home with students.
Parents can review a comprehensive list of adopted texts here.
Community members, including parents and students, are welcome to suggest books for the Secondary English Language Arts curriculum! The initial book proposal form can be found here.
