GCSD Press Release-June 2, 2015
RE:  Instructional Materials Adoption
 
Gilchrist County Schools Prepare to Adopt Instructional Materials for the 2015-2016 School Year
 
Beginning with the textbook adoption for the 2015-2016 School Year, a process has been established to allow parents of public school children to preview the materials being proposed prior to being adopted by the School Board.
 
This year’s adoption includes Career and Technical Education, English Speakers of Other Languages, Health and Physical Education, and World Languages (Spanish).  Information on each of the textbooks associated with this adoption cycle has been posted below.  After reviewing the textbook information, a form is available  to express any concerns you may have regarding any of the proposed textbooks.
 
The Gilchrist County School Board will be holding a public hearing on July 9, 2015 at 6:20pm where they will review any protests made via the available electronic form on the website and hear concerns from those who attend the hearing. The final decision on the adoption of the 2015-2016 textbooks associated with this year’s adoption cycle will be made by the Gilchrist County School Board Members on July 9, 2015.
