The Chula Vista Elementary School District is adopting a new science curriculum for kindergarten through sixth-grade students. Twig Science was approved for adoption at the February Board of Education meeting.

The new science curriculum is an interactive and hands-on science program that will immerse students in the exciting world of science and natural phenomena. The curriculum covers various scientific topics with a strong emphasis on interactive activities for students, digital resources for teachers, and real-world examples.

In December 2021, the District began the evaluation process for adopting a new science curriculum. A Science Curriculum Adoption Subcommittee was formed in early 2022, which consisted of teachers, Chula Vista Educators leadership, principals, and District leadership. During these meetings, non-negotiables were determined, materials were reviewed through a structured paper screening process, and two programs moved forward for the pilot process.

The curriculum was examined with a focus on student learning, teacher support, and assessment. The Twig Science curriculum was determined as the best fit for the District and students.

The new curriculum will be rolled out in a six year process. The District will work closely with Twig Science and District staff members as the curriculum is rolled out to students. Training and professional development will be available throughout the implementation process and beyond.

The District is excited about the new possibilities for staff and students as it embarks on an engaging and innovative approach to science instruction. The new curriculum adoption shows the District’s commitment to providing high-quality and innovative education for all students.
