The Issaquah School District is currently seeking community members for the Issaquah School District’s Instructional Materials Committee.
The ISD is seeing community members to volunteer to serve on the Instructional Materials Committee (IMC). Members of the community are typically asked to make a 2-year commitment to serve on the committee. Community members are appointed by the superintendent.
The purpose of the IMC is to review and act on instructional materials recommended for adoption. The IMC reviews and recommends materials based on the district’s goals for adoption, the district’s philosophy of selection of instructional materials, and current practices for evaluation of materials for gender and ethnic bias and community standards. The committee also stands as the body that re-evaluates challenged materials and provides recommendation to the superintendent when requested. The subject areas vary each year, depending on which subject areas are schedule for the curriculum adoption or review process.
The committee meets monthly, typically on the third Thursday of the month, from 4-6 p.m. at the administration building. The first IMC meeting of the 2022-23 school year is scheduled for Sept.15, 2022. In addition to meetings, members of the committee are also asked to read materials and complete analysis paperwork in advance of each meeting. This reading and analysis takes about 2-5 hours of time each month.
If you are interested in serving as a community representative, please contact Yasmin Masood, email@example.com, Teaching and Learning Office Professional to request an application. If you have questions regarding the IMC, please contact Dawn Wallace, Director of Teaching and Learning at 425-837-7043 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications are due Aug. 15, 2022.
