Instructional Materials


Update

Please know the State Board of Education (SBE) will render a decision regarding the adoption of computer science, social studies, and World Language instructional materials during the September State Board of Education (SBE) meeting.

The upcoming school year, 2022 - 2023 will include the call for instructional materials for the following content areas:

  • ELA
  • Fine Arts
  • Science
Please continue to watch this web page for instructional material updates.

 

    Adoption Process

    For all content areas, the adoption process starts with vendors submitting materials for review as put forth by a Request for Information (RFI) issued by NDE. The instructional materials submitted are subject to an internal review conducted by NDE staff as per the RFI.

      Content Areas of Focus

      Content areas of focus are the areas of instruction on which materials received by NDE will focus. Content areas of focus will always concentrate on grades kindergarten through grade 12.

      Below is the content area review and adoption timelines with the corresponding school year. This process will be implemented in two phases:
