The Issaquah School District (ISD) announced that they would be postponing any adoption of new Math curriculum. Superintendent Steve Rasmussen made the announcement at the June 24th School Board meeting.
The ISD has been using College Preparatory Mathematics and will continue to do so for the 2009-2010 school year. The High School Math Adoption Committee’s recommendation to adopt the Discovering Mathematics still stands and the District will review this recommendation during the upcoming school year.
Tutors at The Learning Curve have extensive experience with both the College Prep series currently being used, and the Discovering Mathematics series. The latter is currently in place in the Lake Washington School District (LWSD) and we know it well.
Both the ISD and LWSD use the same curriculum (Connected Math, aka “CMP”) for 6-8th grade Math.
