Details and Actions Steps for Community Concern Regarding High School English Language Arts Instructional Materials

The Community Curriculum Advisory Committee (CCAC) is a group of LISD parents, teachers, principals, students, business and community members who gather with the primary function to advise on the written, taught, and tested curriculum, related instructional resources, and potential new programs and courses.

CCAC includes representation from the following groups:

  • Parent/Guardian Volunteers
  • MS and HS Student Volunteers
  • Teachers, Administration, Faculty and Staff Volunteers
  • Institutions of Higher Education Volunteers
  • Community and Business Member Volunteers

CCAC meets approximately 5-6 times a year. Once we have our list of volunteers, we’ll work as a community to determine our meeting times so that we may be as inclusive as possible in our commitments to this community curriculum partnership.

Purpose

To address equity within the LISD Social Studies curriculum by advising about resources and identifying areas within our curriculum where other perspectives and histories can be included.

The Social Studies CCAC will reconvene in the Fall of 2021 to review and provide feedback on the work of the Curriculum Development Teams in the 5th, 8th, and 11th grade US History curriculum. Please watch for an announcement on how to join coming in early Fall 2021.
