Complaints Concerning Instructional Materials
The Board of Trustees takes great care in the adoption of instructional materials and is aware that all adopted materials may not be acceptable to all students, their parents/guardians, or other district residents.
The Superintendent or designee is directed to implement regulations (See Exhibit 1312.2) which will permit proper consideration of any complaints against the use of any instructional materials, including textbooks, supplementary textbooks, library books, and other instructional materials and equipment.
The Board will not allow political party affiliation, racial prejudice, a desire to suppress ideas, or an intent to deny students access to ideas with which the Board disagrees, to influence its decision in any such case.
