June 2021 Update: Teaching and Learning would like to provide a brief update regarding the K-7 Mathematics Curriculum Adoption as we look towards school year 2021-2022.

Adoption Committee Recommendation:

  • The elementary math adoption committee has recommended Illustrative Mathematics using the LearnZillion platform for use during the 2021-2022 school year.
  • The secondary math adoption committee has recommended Illustrative Mathematics using the Desmos platform for use during the 2021-2022 school year.

In Partnership, Teaching and Learning

To affirm and inspire each and every student to learn and thrive as creators of their future world requires that every student receives an equitable education. A cornerstone of educational equity is high-quality instruction through grade-level standards access. In order to serve each and every student academically, it is critical that curricular content is standards-aligned and educators are offered opportunities to deepen their knowledge of standards.

Beginning March 2021, Bellevue’s Teaching and Learning Department will engage interested educators in professional dialogue and learning regarding Common Core State Standards in Mathematics. A depth of knowledge in the standards will set the stage for authoring a shared instructional vision for Mathematics, P-12. This work will necessitate analysis of current core and supplemental instructional materials and may result in a P-7 curriculum adoption. The partnership of our educator colleagues, students and families will be key as we move forward in learning and serving our students together.
