District adopts online classes, digital textbooks for eight subjects. Evergreen Public Schools this summer will begin shifting from paper textbooks to virtual ones. The school board at its Tuesday meeting approved digital curriculum and material for eight subjects ranging from kindergarten science and math to high school Advanced Placement psychology. The curriculum includes online class work, as well as additional printed materials. The school board will consider additional curriculum throughout the summer. The curriculum replaces textbooks for some classes as the district prepares to put laptop computers in the hands of all its students from third grade to senior year this year. Younger students will also use computers and the newly adopted material in the classroom, but won’t take the devices home. Vancouver and Battle Ground school districts are also rolling out digital curriculum.
