2021 Arts Adoption

Programs adopted by the State Board of Education on November 3, 2021.

At its meeting on November 3, 2021, the State Board of Education acted to do the following:

  • Adopt the three instructional materials programs recommended by the Instructional Quality Commission (IQC)
  • Direct California Department of Education staff, in conjunction with members of the IQC and/or Content Review Experts, as needed, to evaluate whether publishers have made the IQC-recommended edits and corrections, social content citations, and publisher errata specified in the Instructional Quality Commission Advisory Report to the adopted instructional materials. In the case of inconsistencies between the IQC-recommended publisher errata and the-IQC recommended edits and corrections and social content citations specified in the Advisory Report, the IQC-recommended edits and corrections and social content citations shall take precedence over the publisher errata
  • Pursuant to Education Code Section 60200(e), specifically find, based on the Instructional Quality Commission Advisory Report, that fewer than five programs met the criteria for the adoption in kindergarten through grade eight
