Payson Unified School District Curriculum Adoption for Science


A team of educators with expertise in teaching science have reviewed curricular resources and recommended products that will suit the learning needs of the students who attend Payson Unified School District.


The 6th-12th grade committee recommends Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s Science Dimensions. It is closely aligned with the NSGS standards and provides an inquiry based model that will suit our students well. It also offers many online lab resources and matches most efficiently with our high school course offerings. https://www.hmhco.com/programs/hmh-science-dimensions


The 3rd-5th grade team recommends Elevate Science by Savvas. This curriculum offers many hands on experiments, excellent differentiation tools, and lessons that can be tailored to any length of instructional time.  https://www.savvas.com/index.cfm?locator=PS3eR5


Both products will be on display in the PUSD district office for 60 days before the governing board takes action on their adoption. Please feel free to view the samples and give feedback to the Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment, Katrina Sacco, at katrina.sacco@pusd10.org.
