All content areas and grade bands are subject to change based upon internal DESE priorities and capacity. CURATE accepts all submissions from publishers on a rolling basis via COMMBUYS above.
CURATE panels only review products that have already been found by an independent evaluation process to be partially or fully aligned to college- and-career ready standards. For HSS, the Rennie Center has been selected as our vendor to conduct this gateway evaluation. We are planning for a Fall 2023 CURATE panel for Grades K–5, Grade 8, and Grades 9–12 HSS core curricular materials, as well as supplemental resources focused on the student-led civics project, media literacy, culturally responsive instruction in Grade 8 and any supplemental resources for high school.
If you would like to be included in the Rennie Center's curriculum review as a gateway into CURATE, please contact the Rennie Center at firstname.lastname@example.org
