    In the fall of 2013, District 181 embarked on a five-year curriculum renewal cycle for mathematics.

In the spring of 2014, the Math Committee completed the last phase of year one by recommending materials to be piloted for the first semester of the 2014-15 school year. The recommended materials were presented at the May 27, 2014 Board of Education meeting.
