Members of the public are welcome to review instructional materials that are being considered for classroom-level, large-group instruction in WCPS. These types of resources are reviewed by teams including teachers, content-area supervisors, parents, and students prior to being presented at Curriculum Council. The Curriculum Council may recommend to the Superintendent that the resource be approved for use within WCPS. The resource is then presented at two successive Board meetings for 1st and 2nd (final) readings. Between the 1st and 2nd reading, interested members of the Wicomico County community may review and provide input on these resources. The specific resources open for comment and instructions for viewing them will be displayed below. This page will be updated after each Board meeting in which action on instructional resources is taken.
