COLORADO SPRINGS — Parents of students in Academy School District 20 have the opportunity to review textbooks that will be used in the 2021-2022 school year.

Every year, an expert panel of teachers submit their choices of textbooks for consideration by the district. It's a five-year cycle to cover all grades and subjects.

This year, the textbooks being recommended include: Science for grades 6-12, English Language Arts for elementary school, high school Business Law and high school Spanish.

"Their feedback obviously is huge, and again, just that partnership with our parents and community so they understand, you know, what is the process?" said Tacy Killingsworth, the Director of Curriculum and Instruction for D20." Why are we doing it? And, just to have that input to support the student learning."

Textbooks can be reviewed weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. until Jan. 22.

Due to COVID-19, you have to make an appointment to review the textbooks. Call 719-234-1223 to schedule and appointment.
