Complaints Concerning Instructional Materials   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board 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 shall develop and implement regulations 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. Complaints may be appealed through established procedures to the Governing Board, whose decision shall be final.

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.
