2013-2014 Instructional Material Adoptions

Posted by Science Explored on February 26, 2013

The current subscriptions for all adopted supplemental science products are scheduled to expire at the end of the 2012–2013 school year. To ensure these products remain available for schools until new science materials become available, a one-year contract extension has been offered to each publisher of adopted supplemental science materials.  During this period, schools may elect to adopt a product different from their previous adoption.  If you adopted during the 2012-2013 school year, you have a 2-year adoption and do not need to re-adopt for the upcoming IMA.

To have access to adopted supplemental science materials for the 2013–2014 school year, each district and charter school may submit a requisition for a one-year subscription through EMAT. For the upcoming school year, the price of each product will be adjusted to reflect a one-year subscription.  New one-year pricing will be available when EMAT re-opens June 12, 2013 - STEMscopes™ will maintain its same competitive, low cost.

Supplemental science materials are available for grades 5–8, biology, chemistry, Integrated Physics and Chemistry, and physics. New science products for all courses in grades K–12 are scheduled for adoption in November 2013 and implementation in the 2014–2015 school year.
