Marietta school board approves $1M math program purchase

The Marietta City School Board on Tuesday moved forward with purchasing a math program for its kindergarten through 11th grade students.

The Pearson Math Program will provide materials to the school system for six years at a cost not to exceed $1 million, the school system said.

MCS added the decision to go with Pearson will ensure that its math program is aligned with state standards. 

Marietta City Schools solicited requests for proposal in October, and narrowed the choice down to three vendors: Pearson, McGraw Hill and Houghton Mifflin Math.
