Upon entering the main doors of the Annex, visitors are asked to sign in after presenting a valid, government-issued ID.  Information about the review process and a form to provide feedback, as well as the state ELA standards and information about the textbook adoption process, will be available.  

Textbooks are the foundational resource used for instruction in our schools, so the district takes this decision seriously. Input from teachers, administrators, and the community will be considered in order to reach a consensus regarding the textbook series that will be offered to the FSSD School Board for final approval at the March school board meeting. Parents and community members are a valued partner in the education of our students and we appreciate involvement!
