Carnegie Learning® Math Selected By Oregon Department Of Education In 2012-2015 Bridge-Year Adoption

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) has approved Carnegie Learning ® textbooks, adaptive software, and professional development support for implementation in high schools through July 31, 2015.  Instructional materials on the approved list are reviewed and formally adopted by the State Board of Education for purchase by Oregon school districts using state education funds.

The Carnegie Learning Math Series: Course 3, Algebra I: A Common Core Program, Geometry, and Algebra II programs were adopted in a bridge-year review intended to address the need for instructional materials to support the transition to the new Common Core State Standards in mathematics. In addition, Carnegie Learning Professional Development Services support Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice by preparing Oregon teachers for classroom instruction that deepens student content knowledge, promotes problem-solving, and encourages students to reflect on their thinking and consolidate new mathematical ideas.

Oregon is one of 45 states and the District of Columbia embracing Common Core standards to prepare all students for college and careers in the 21st century. The state began implementing new common core-aligned curricula in the 2011-12 school year.

Oregon's adopted instructional materials process encourages voluntary applications for programs that meet the ODE's Mathematics Grades 9-12 review criteria. By law, textbooks are subject to rigorous review and must meet at least 80 percent of the overall established criteria in order to be approved by the State Board of Education for use in classrooms.

In Oregon, Carnegie Learning ® programs are implemented in Portland, Beaverton, Eugene, Tigard- Tualatin, West Linn- Wilsonville, Medford, Bend- Lapine and St. Helens school districts.

Based on decades of research and third-party evaluation, Carnegie Learning curricula and professional development support  for teachers are currently adopted in fifteen of 20 curricula adoption states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah and West Virginia.
