High School Bridge to College Math and ELA Curriculum Adoption

The Puyallup School District Department of Instructional Leadership reviewed instructional materials for the OSPI sponsored Bridget to College English language arts (ELA) and Mathematics courses. The Bridge to College courses for ELA and Mathematics are fourth-year (senior-level) courses designed for students scoring lower than a level 3 on the Smarter Balanced high school assessment (10th grade). Students who earn a “B” or better in the Bridge Course are eligible to enter credit-bearing coursework in any of the State of Washington Community and Technical Colleges. The courses are grounded in essential career and college readiness expectations as reflected in the Washington State K-12 Learning Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics (the Common Core State Standards) to ensure that students passing the course are fully prepared for college-level coursework. The courses were developed by higher education faculty, high school teachers, and curriculum specialists from multiple colleges and school districts.

Parents and community members are invited to preview and provide feedback on the instructional materials for the courses.
