K-5 Science Content Area Team Update A highly dedicated team of 19 K-5 teachers and coaches spent some summer time reviewing and revising prioritized science standards, determining the qualities needed in possible science solutions and studying nine different science programs. Representatives from the top four companies presented to the K-5 Science Content Area Team in July. The next step is to reconvene (on 9/14) and refine feedback to advance it to the District Curriculum Committee which will impact the future of K-5 Science in Cambridge-Isanti Schools.

6-12 Math Content Area Team Update A hard working group of 18 secondary math leaders and academic coaches dedicated a number of days throughout the summer reviewing and aligning the prioritized math standards, determining styles of instruction and curriculum to best support our students, and evaluating a number of different resources from over five publishers in an effort to determine the best resources to provide our secondary math teachers. The next step is to reconvene and determine which publishers will be brought back for product demonstrations and questioning. Math Content Area Team members, please be on the watch for an email from T&L Curriculum for more details.
