The district is proposing using Biology Now as the textbook for High School Biology. Before making a decision on this textbook, it is required that the board vote to start a 60-day period for public comment.
Biology Now presents material aligned to the new state standards in a novel and approachable manner. Chapters are organized around case studies pertaining to the topic and presented as a narrative, in order to peak and maintain student interest. The book includes full color infographics in each chapter, for students to practice graphic interpretation. The book also includes a supplementary resource, Great Discoveries in Biology, which details the scientists and their methods behind the material that is presented in class and in the book.
The public is encouraged to view the textbook electronically and submit comments via the link below:
