The purpose of P-7 Mathematics Instructional Materials Adoption Committee is to carry out the instructional materials selection process and make a recommendation to the Instructional Materials Committee based on objective evidence gathered during this process.

The adoption committee will create a P-12 vision for mathematics in Bellevue and with the assistance of inside and outside expertise, will recommend an instructional material to support students learning math in Bellevue School District.

Approximately 150 P-12 educators are participating in a professional learning series with Dr Phil Daro.  Those educators participating in professional learning will be given priority consideration in serving on the P-7 Adoption Committee.

May 19 BSD Mathematics – Philosophy and Evolution Community Event: Please join us on May 19 to hear about the work in BSD to modernize and enhance our current P-12 math system and to have your voice shared. Learn more about this event.

K-7 Curriculum Review and Input Opportunity. We are embarking on a K-7 math curriculum adoption process, as our current materials are outdated. Learn more a about this review and input opportunity.
