Important Note: During staff reports, the School Board members directed the Superintendent to proceed with the 
purchase of the English Language Arts curriculum program Benchmark Education for all elementary grade levels TK- for the 2020-21 school year. The cost of the curriculum is $2,050,283 ($2,219, 431 with tax). This purchase will include three years of consumable material replacement for every grade level. We are in the process of identifying restricted funding sources to pay for the materials so that this purchase does not impact our general fund budget solutions. Our goal is to provide an initial curriculum training for all teachers before the end of the school year and get the materials into the teacher’s hands before they go on summer break.
