Textbook Adoption

district document header


K-5 Parents:

On May 4, 2023, Indiana state law changed with the passing of the House Bill 1558. The law states that beginning with the 2024-2025 school year, school districts: (1) shall adopt curriculum or supplemental materials for reading that are aligned with the science of reading and to the student's reading proficiency; and (2) may not adopt curriculum or supplemental materials for reading that are based on the three-cueing model. 

At that time, the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) began initiating specifications on how the law would be implemented in schools.  The IDOE then conducted a review of vendor-submitted curricular materials to identify those aligned with the science of reading.  On February 9, 2024, the Department of Education issued  a list of high-quality materials approved for the reading curriculum.

Since that time, Pike has been seeking guidance and clarification pertaining to expectations regarding the reading adoption.  The K-5 Reading Adoption was scheduled to occur during the 2024-25 school year. However, based on our understanding of the expectations at this time regarding the implementation of a qualified reading curriculum aligned to the science of reading, we need to expedite the reading adoption process.  While our initial plan, like other districts, aimed for a timely approach to the process, we must now shift to a more accelerated strategy.

Approved reading vendors recently presented materials to a committee of teachers and we are now seeking feedback from the broader school community.   Each elementary will have samples of the reading materials during the week of May 20 - May 24.  The Pike Administration Services Center will also offer open sessions for community review of the curriculum materials under consideration on May 21, 2024 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. and May 22, 2024 from 8:00 - 9:30 a.m. For those individuals and families who are unable to attend one of the two in-person review sessions, we have included some demo accounts for you to access these resources online.

If you would like to complete a short survey after you review the materials, please use the following link or QR code located at the bottom of this notice. 

Thank you for your understanding and commitment to your child’s education.
