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 texts proposed by their colleagues.  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.
