Science & Social Studies Curriculum Adoption

Parents and community members, as part of the upcoming statewide textbook adoption for select science and social studies courses at the high school level, Lexington Two will be making a district selection that will serve as our primary instructional resource for the coming years. We would like your input as to which textbook/curriculum we select.
 
The South Carolina Department of Education first solicited submissions from textbook publishers. These were then reviewed by panels of educators and content experts to narrow down to a handful of selections. The materials were on display for public review at locations around the state and public feedback was used in finalizing the curriculum choices presented to the State Board of Education. These materials were approved by the State Board and are now what districts across South Carolina can choose from for this curriculum adoption cycle.
 
Additional textbook presentations will be posted to the Office of Instructional Materials website by May 28th and remain active through July 31st.
 
Below are the choices available for the select courses.  Please review these options and share your thoughts regarding the pros and/or cons of each.  This feedback will be used as we make a final district selection later this summer.  All feedback needs to be received by June 10th.
 
Each has a full-access digital preview linked below.  Physical copies from some publishers are also available for review at the District Education Center by appointment.  To schedule an appointment, please call (803) 739-3186.
