Subject: Pre-calculus

I am currently in a District with two high schools that teach out of 
different precalculus texts.  We are being forced to pick a textbook that 
is the same between both schools.  However, both schools have a completely 
different view on what type of book should be selected and what should be 
taught in the course.  I would like anybody out there to give me their 
ideas on what should be taught and recommend any texts that they may be 
using or know are good.  By the way, the differing views consist of one 
school where a calculator is discouraged and a strong focus on notation, 
whereas, the other school encourages calculators for exploration, 
modeling, etc. with less focus on notation.

What are your views??
