The Eastern Pulaski School Board approved the textbook adoption committee for two elementary subjects. Superintendent Dr. Robert Klitzman said a group of educators and parents will choose the material.
“The curricular area that we’ll study leading to adoption is in the area of reading and handwriting,” commented Klitzman. “For those who have followed our data, we have had exceptionally good data in the area of reading so we’re going to be hard-pressed to come up with new materials that will help us do a better job.”
Klitzman explained that the concept isn’t old, but the material may be and it’s time to move forward with new textbooks.
“Mrs. Collins, elementary principal, will head a committee that will look over our reading program and textbook options and then come back with a recommendation on what will be best to help us in student learning,” Klitzman said.
