English textbooks costing $229,889 and meeting Common Core standards are for more than 4,600 high school students in the Fairfield-Suisun School District – the first time in a decade that new books have been adopted for English high school classes in the district, an administrator says.
“The students are very engaged in this curriculum,” said Sheila McCabe, director of secondary education for the district. “Our teachers are very, very excited about this adoption.”
Trustees for the school district meeting Thursday approved adoption of the textbooks that have been piloted in selected classrooms. The textbooks are for students in ninth, 10th and 11th grades.
