In order for each pupil in kindergarten through sixth grade in the Victor Elementary School District to have math instructional materials aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), we completed a math pilot. Staff reviewed math textbooks that were State Board approved and voted on the selection that best aligned with CCSS for our district. A majority of the staff have voted for the EnVision math program.

On January 14, 2015, the Board approved adoption of this program. This action is to approve the purchase of the supplies for the textbook adoption.
