Dear Lafayette Families,
We are writing to inform you of an update with the Elementary Math Adoption. The school district has decided to move forward as a unified system with every school implementing Math in Focus. Waivers for other resources will no longer be accepted. As a community we will be fully trained and ready to implement at the start of next school year. Thank you for your input as we moved through this process.
The following is an excerpt that Superintendent Banda sent to Building Leaders yesterday:
We believe any of the top three materials considered by the Materials Adoption Committee would have provided staff with a strong resource to support instruction. The selection of Math in Focus provides an opportunity to ensure an aligned approach to mathematics across the district through our established feeder patterns in regions. The implementation of a single program also ensures equitable access to students throughout the city of Seattle.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any further questions.
