ELA Textbook Adoption Committee Opportunity
During the fall of 2020, St. Johns County Schools will be participating in the process of textbook adoption for English Language Arts. We are in need of non-instructional members (i.e., parents, community members) for the textbook adoption committee. Committee members will have the opportunity to review a variety of ELA instructional resources and provide valuable feedback. This process will be completed in mid-December, all meetings will be virtual, and every effort will be made to minimize your time commitment. If you are interested in being considered for this opportunity, please contact your school's Instructional Literacy Coach.
