English Language Arts and Health Resource Selection Continues

Natrona County School District is establishing an aligned, articulated and assessed curriculum, commonly referred to as a Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum, in all nine content areas.  This work is being done in accordance with the NCSD Long Range Plan by Subject Area Committees comprised of members from a variety of schools, grade levels, and courses.

English Language Arts and Health are in year three of this process and have worked to develop aligned assessments and evaluate resources according to the ELA/Health Learning Resources Timeline.  The ELA and Health Subject Area Committees’ evaluations of all publisher-submitted resources may be viewed in the ELA Resource Review Portal and the Health Resource Review Portal.  This information is provided to assist schools in making an informed decision in selecting resources which meet the needs of their students and support the NCSD Curriculum.

English Language Arts and Health resources were displayed and available for public comment at Natrona County School District Central Services 970 N. Glenn Road.  The public display and comment period for subject area committee recommended resources was February 13, 2017 – March 10, 2017.  The Board of Trustees approved ELA and Health Recommended Resources on April 10, 2017.   Publisher provided sample resources remain on display.  Schools may schedule a preview of the recommended resources at CSF by calling LeAnn Aagard at 253-5238.

At this time, schools may contact publishers for additional samples or pricing information.  Schools may begin submitting ELA and/or Health Resource Selection School Plans. The school ordering process begins for recommended resources and for school selected resources, upon approval.  School resource selection and ordering process continues April 2017 through December 2018.

Please contact Danna Anderson, Director of Teaching and Learning, with questions at 253-5305.
