                     Attachment 1

Ms. Grondin thanked Jessica West for the incredible amount of work she has done on the selection process for a new math program along with the dedication and commitment of the Selection Committee members.  Members of the Selection Committee cover every grade level K-5 as well as ELL, Special Education and building administrators.  She said it has been a very thorough process.

Math Mentor, Jessica West, said out of all the programs they reviewed, they have narrowed it down to two top programs which are Illustrative Mathematics and Eureka Math.  Teachers reported on what it was that stood out for the top two programs and Ms. West went over those highlights.  The committee then set criteria for exploring the top programs further.  The committee hopes to make a decision by May 3 but will take another month if needed so everyone is as comfortable as possible with the decision.  An update will be provided at the next Curriculum and Education Committee on May 3 at 5:30 p.m.

The meeting adjourned at 6:03 p.m.
