PITTSBURGH, Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2012, Carnegie Learning curricula were adopted for long-term implementation in six states after completing instructional materials evaluation and review driven by the new Common Core State Standards. Carnegie Learning's research-based textbooks and adaptive learning software were evaluated and approved for use in:
- Arkansas : High School
- Georgia : Middle School and High School
- New Mexico : Middle School and Algebra I
- Oregon : Middle School, High School, and Professional Development services for transition to the Common Core
- South Carolina : Middle School
- Utah : Integrated Math I
Three states -- Arkansas, Georgia, and New Mexico -- adopted Carnegie Learning curricula for implementation from 2013 through 2018. Oregon, South Carolina and Utah conducted interim, or bridge, evaluations to address the transition to Common Core standards that will occur prior to the next scheduled state textbook adoption cycles. In addition to the above mentioned new state adoptions, Carnegie Learning curricula are also currently adopted in Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee and West Virginia.
Twenty U.S. states conduct curricula evaluations led by their departments of education. Once those materials are approved, they may be purchased by school districts using state education funds. Thirty open-territory states purchase materials at the local school district or individual building levels, independent of a centralized state-level evaluation.
