Community Review of K-8 Science Basal Resources

Learn more about the Science Basal Resources being reviewed for adoption for the 2022-23 School Year.

Fairfax County Public Schools is adopting new K-8 School Science Resources for the 2022-23 school year.

Public review of the recommended materials is part of the process for selecting new resources. All community feedback will be shared with School Board members before the vote at the School Board regular meeting.

Please note that only comments regarding the evaluation of the instructional materials (not any additional resources/materials) will be considered from the survey and comment sheet.


  • Science basal instructional materials may be accessed online in October and November for public review and comment.
  • A review committee composed of community members, administrators, and teachers will meet in November and December to review the instructional materials and community feedback.

If you have any questions, please contact Brian Mandell by email ([email protected]) or phone (571-423-4785) during normal FCPS business hours.
