FWCS is considering materials from HMH Into Reading, Fountas & Pinnell Classroom and Savvas myView for elementary school. For middle and high school, FWCS is considering HMH Into Reading and Savvas myPerspectives.

FWCS’ curriculum experts have reviewed the materials, and teachers will have a separate time to examine the curriculum options. Families are invited to attend meetings next week focused on the elementary options and the secondary options. Elementary materials will be presented at 6 p.m. Monday, March 7; middle and high school materials will be presented at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 9.
