School board to hear about new curriculum


   Hemet school trustees will hear a report about upcoming new curriculum when they meet Tuesday, Feb. 5.

   In the 2014-15 school year, all children in California will be expected to master and be tested in the California Common Core Standards in English language arts and mathematics.

   Trustees of the Hemet Unified School District will be shown a short video as an introduction to the district's roll-out of the new standards and accompanying curriculum.

   Teachers from schools and 
grade levels across the district have been meeting to create the new curriculum.

   School board members also will hear an update of construction projects at Hemet High School, Whittier Elementary School, Ramona Elementary School, Acacia Middle School, Idyllwild School and the former Santa Fe Middle School.

   The projects are being paid for with money from Measure T, a $149 million bond measure passed by voters in 2006.

   The 6:30 p.m. meeting is at 1791 W. Acacia Ave., Hemet.
