Algebra 1/Geometry/Algebra 2 Textbook Adoption
The MIHS math department has been working to identify new core math textbooks for the past three years. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the adoption of new 6-8 math curricula in the past few years, they experienced a prolonged process. However, the committee will receive presentations from four identified vendors on November 3, 2022, and will have a text identified for proposal to the MISD Instructional Materials Committee at their January 17, 2023 meeting.
Biology Textbook Adoption

MISD is currently seeking input on the two biology textbooks being considered for adoption at MIHS.
