ELA Adoption Overview

  • In early 2021, Gilbert Public Schools’ Curriculum Department began the process to adopt new curriculum resources for both Secondary English Language Arts and Mandarin in grades seven through twelve. The Governing Board granted approval to begin a pilot and open a 60-day public review for the following recommendations: English Language Arts 7- 12: Savvas Learning Company - My Perspectives

    Teachers who will be participating in the pilot will be notifying families directly. In addition, the curriculum resources will be available for public review, and we would like to welcome all families and community members to participate in providing feedback. 

    Public review displays will be available starting February 18th at the following locations: 

    7-12 English Language Arts

    1. District Office Building B Lobby
    2. Campo Verde High School Front Office
    3. Desert Ridge Junior High School Front Office
    4. GPS Global Academy
