TK-8 District of Choice


Instruction > Board Policy 6161 - Equipment, Books and Materials

The Board of Trustees recognizes that student learning is enhanced when students have access to high-quality textbooks, equipment and other instructional materials for each of the subjects they are studying. To adequately support the Board-approved curriculum, instructional materials also should be up to date.

The Superintendent or designee shall develop procedures for determining the sufficiency of district instructional materials in providing accurate, current information and ensuring that students have access to standards-based materials. When new instructional materials have been chosen in accordance with the district's selection and evaluation policy, the Board shall make final decisions regarding their purchase.

The teaching staff will serve on curriculum committees and consult with the administration for the purpose of recommending improvements in curriculum and materials. The Board believes that at all times the schools should be as well equipped and maintained as may be possible within existing financial limitations.

The disposition of old and obsolete textbooks shall be accomplished under the direction of the Superintendent of schools in accordance with state and district regulations.
