BALDWIN PARK – Baldwin Park Unified officials are inviting community members to preview proposed TK-12 text books for English Language Arts, Dual Language and English Language Development.

Comment periods will be held from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. at two locations in the community:

  • Performing Arts Center, 4640 N. Main Ave.: Wednesday, Jan. 11
  • North Park Continuation High School, 4600 Bogart Ave.: Thursday, Jan. 12 and Friday, Jan. 13

The textbooks align with the recently enacted California Standards, which provide a greater emphasis on critical thinking and non-fiction material review than California’s previous standards.

The final decision on the new textbooks will be made by the Board of Education.

“These textbooks will form a key component of our curriculum focus as we continue to strengthen our core academic offerings,” Superintendent Froilan N. Mendoza said. “We welcome the perspective of our entire community for this significant decision.
