    Books in a stack

    Fulton County Schools is reviewing resources for textbook adoption for ELA in Grades K-2.  The first public review (November 30, 2020 - January 22, 2021) assisted in narrowing the K-2 ELA Textbook Adoption to two potential resources: “Benchmark Workshop” and “Wonders.” As the final part of the review process, parents and stakeholders can visit any elementary school to view physical samples of the materials until Friday, March 26. Virtual presentations from both vendors being considered for adoption also are included on the K-2 ELA Textbook Adoption Website. Palmetto parents can call the school at 470-254-6100 to make an appointment to review resources. Please remember that all stakeholders who view the materials at a Fulton County Schools site must wear a mask and follow all posted safety protocols.
