Elementary STEM Adoption
The Elementary STEM Adoption Committee has been tasked with reviewing and coming to consensus on a comprehensive curriculum that could be implemented by classroom teachers in grades kindergarten through fifth grade. Once consensus is reached by the committee, there will be a public review of the adoption committee's recommendation, the recommendation will be brought to the Instructional Advisory Committee (IAC), and then the Peninsula School District will take action on the recommendation.
