The Chesapeake Public Schools Division of Teaching and Learning is seeking parent and community input for the citywide adoption of the new K-5 English Language Arts (ELA) textbooks. Citizens are invited to examine the proposed textbooks and provide feedback now through January 7, 2022.
A virtual textbook review process has been prepared for the public. Each publisher is creating a custom video to provide an overview of the resources and content included in each textbook set.
