–The Paso Robles Joint Unified School District has announced that is in the process of adopting new middle school science curriculum for grades six through eight.

From March 9 — March 22, the Paso Robles community is invited to preview the FOSS middle school science instructional materials which are proposed for district adoption at the PRJUSD Board of Trustees meetings on March 23rd at 6 p.m​.

Administrators and teachers have been working together to select and evaluate new materials for the past year. Science teachers have piloted two separate programs and the adoption committee has selected FOSS as the program recommended for adoption at the upcoming PRJUSD Board meeting. FOSS, Next Generation science curriculum aligns with the state-adopted, Next Generation Science Standards.

All pilot materials are viewable at the District Office at 800 Niblick Road, Educational Services office from 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. The materials will not be available for check out.

Additionally, documents are available at the public display in the district office which explain the process followed in reviewing the two programs as well as the option to provide a response or challenge to the above-referenced recommendation.
