The Francis Howell School District (FHSD) will implement a new elementary math program called enVision Math this fall.
The new math program will provide increased rigor and will meet the needs of high-achieving students as well as those who need additional time and support. As with any academic programming, the new math program will be aligned to FHSD and state standards.
It has been 12 years since FHSD’s last elementary mathematics program adoption. In anticipation of a change to the math program, over 40 FHSD elementary teachers spent two years researching programs and best practices for teaching mathematics to elementary children.
To help parents understand the change in the math materials, the district will hold Math Parent Information Nights from 6-7 p.m. on Aug. 12 at Barnwell Elementary; from 6-7 p.m. on Aug. 14 at Castlio Elementary; and from 6-7 p.m. on Aug. 19 at Independence Elementary.
