Santa Fe Public Schools has begun the process of adopting instructional materials in the content area of social studies for the 2023-2024 school year. Committees are being formed with representatives from stakeholders throughout the City of Santa Fe. SFPS teachers, administrators, parents and community members will meet regularly to review social studies materials and make recommendations for adoption. The materials will be purchased as part of the State’s six-year adoption cycle established by the New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED). Of paramount interest to SFPS is the well-being of our students. We are excited to have the opportunity to provide our students and teachers with materials that align with the New Mexico Social Studies Standards. Should you have questions regarding instructional materials, please contact the District Instructional Materials Coordinator, Ms. Erica Wheeler, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
