This information is provided to address concerns and recent legislation passed related to use of Common Core Standards in Tennessee schools. Meigs County Schools purchased and will use the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Math Textbook series titled “GOMATH”. This series has been approved by the State Department of Education and is based on Tennessee State Educational Standards. This series is also based on “Common Core” standards as indicated throughout the text. Our recent purchase of this textbook series was prior to the Tennessee legislation that was passed prohibiting the use of text and materials that use “common core standards” TN SB769/ HB782 (Public Chapter 205). The continued use of this text has been approved by the State Department of Education and Meigs County Schools are in full compliance with all laws and regulations related to this issue. Students and parents will see references to “Common Core” throughout these textbooks. Again, this textbook is based upon Tennessee Academic Standards as well and has been approved by the State of Tennessee Department of Education. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Central Office at 423-334-5793.
