TUSD posts culturally relevant history, gov't outlines

Tucson Unified School District posted curriculum for court-mandated culturally relevant history and government courses Friday. The district is accepting public comments on the 11th and 12th-grade class outlines through Aug. 8.

The curriculum were developed under the district's Unitary Status Plan, the required steps outlined under a federal judge's watch in a decades-long desegregation case.

The classes include Mexican American and African American viewpoint U.S. government courses for high school seniors, and Mexican American and African American U.S. history classes for juniors.

The district is asking for public feedback on the classes, which are expected to be voted on by the TUSD Governing Board on Aug. 13.

Fall-semester classes begin Thursday. Students wishing to take the culturally-relevant classes will be placed in traditional classes until the curriculum is approved by the Board.

The district posted plans for culturally-relevant literature classes in June.
