Curriculum & Textbooks

The textbook department works to provide all adopted curriculum materials to school sites. Please refer to the current adoption list in the column on the right to review a comprehensive list of textbooks adopted in ABC Unified. 

 

Textbook Adoption Process:

 

ABC USD follows a comprehensive textbook adoption process. A committee of teachers with representatives from each school site completes an exhaustive evaluation of the state-adopted materials using rubrics as recommended by the state frameworks. Parents, guardians, and community members are encouraged to participate in this process during the 30-day review period prior to the final adoption of the textbook. The textbook department will announce the beginning of the 30-day review period in the local newspaper and through the ABC USD parent square notification system.

 

Instructional materials used in California public schools must comply with Education Code sections 60040-60045 and 60048 as well as the SBE guidelines in the Standards for Evaluating Instructional Materials for Social Content.

 

Please visit the California Department of Education website page on Curriculum Framework and Instructional Materials for more information.

 

For further questions regarding instructional materials, please contact the Instructional Materials Technician at (562) 926-5566, extension 21217.
