9-12 ELA Adoption Committee

  • A committee has formed to recommend a new curriculum for 9-12 ELA and 6-12 writing for implementation during the 2024-2025 school year.

    Public review of the suggested materials is now closed. 

    Committee members were asked to examine and make recommendations for a new 9-12 ELA and 6-12 writing resources for adoption to support teachers and students in their ability to meet or exceed grade-level proficiency targets. Deer Valley Unified School District will show preference for materials that strongly align with the 2016 Arizona ELA Standards. Our goal is to identify products that best support curricular needs in both digital platforms and in-person classrooms.

    The committee will present its findings to the governing board on May 28 and June 11.

    If you have any questions regarding this curriculum review, please email Danell Stephenson.
