The information below addresses only the procedural steps needed to submit materials to CMAC for review. Staff should read and understand Board policy and procedure 2020 and 2020P prior to submitting material to CMAC.
Applicants seeking approval of instructional materials (the "sponsor") begin by contacting their principal and the appropriate Instructional Support person to discuss the process. Obadiah Dunham (Curriculum and Instruction K-12), Julie Trembath-Neuberger (Special Education-Secondary), Kim Durkin (Special Education-Elementary), Damen Schuneman (College and Career Readiness), and Shelby Reynolds (Instructional Technology) will provide guidance, reviewing these considerations:
- Alignment with standards, district curriculum, and program needs
- Criteria for scientifically-based research in the content areas
- Funding source
Once it has been decided to move forward with the CMAC submission, sponsors should contact the Administrative Assistant for CMAC (Anne Deutschman: email@example.com or x7703) to request a date for the presentation of materials to CMAC. Sponsor materials must be received by the due date for the meeting date requested to secure a place on the agenda (see the CMAC Timeline below).
The sponsor is responsible for completing the sponsor documentation, as well as soliciting the appropriate teacher and principal reviews. The documentation required is dependent upon the type of materials being submitted. Please read the Application Process Instructions. to determine the documentation needed. Forms can be found on the CMAC Forms and Documents page.
Send the completed CMAC application packet to Obadiah Dunham, Chair of the Curriculum Materials Adoption Committee, before the application deadline.
