Surplus Textbook Contact Change

Jonathan Collins has changed positions in the T&L department and will now be serving as a Research Consultant.  Caren Johnson has replaced Jonathan as the Administrative Secretary supporting Jennifer Throndsen, the T&L Director. As such, Caren will be the new point of contact for surplus curriculum materials and other curriculum related needs.





SEEd Standards Update
As many of you know, the new K-5 and high school SEEd standards were adopted on June 6th by the Utah State Board of Education. These standards are now formatted and available on the USBE Science Website - https://www.schools.utah.gov/curr/science

The standards include a single document for all grades K-12. There are also four other documents for each grade band (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12). Please also notice that recent adoption changed the document slightly for grades 6-8 including a new introduction and adding the Disciplinary Core Idea (DCI) codes for each standard (read the new introduction for more details and explanation).

Finally, it is expected that all schools and districts use these standards starting the 2020-21 school year. If a school or district chooses to use them next school year (2019-20) they are welcomed to do so. The end of year assessments for the new SEEd standards will not be available until the 2020-21 school year.

More information and details about implementation and supports for these standards will be sent in the coming weeks and months.
