Public Hearings on the 2018 Science Adoption of K–8 Instructional Materials
General Guidelines


The IQC is conducting public hearings regarding the 2018 Science instructional materials submitted for adoption consideration. Written comments are also welcome. Directions for providing public comment are:

  1. All public testimony may be limited to one or two minutes per speaker and/or organization, depending on the number signing up to testify. Because of time constraints, written testimony is encouraged from all who testify.

  2. All testimony shall be specific to the content of the materials (publisher, book, section, page number, etc.). The IQC is interested in comments regarding the alignment of the materials with the criteria for evaluating instructional materials contained in California’s framework for the pertinent subject area.

  3. Speakers are assigned to speak in the order they have signed up and will be given a numbered card. The chair may organize public comments by topic. When called upon to speak, speakers identify their name and the organization they represent, if any.

  4. Organizations who sign up more than one speaker may be asked to select a single representative in order to allow all other individuals and organizations wishing to provide testimony to be heard.

  5. To avoid repeated comments, speakers are encouraged to simply indicate they are in support of statements made by previous speakers and then either leave the podium or provide comments on issues not previously presented.

  6. There will be no disruptive behavior during the hearing. Individuals not complying will be asked to leave the hearing room.
