The Governing Board recognizes that students' educational opportunities are enhanced when they have sufficient 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 must also be up to date.

The Superintendent or designees 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 materials have been chosen in accordance with state adoption cycles and approved by the Board, the Board shall make final decisions regarding their purchase and the use of district funds to supplement state allotments for this purpose.

(cf. 0440 - District Technology Plan)

(cf. 3270 - Sale and Disposal of Books, Equipment and Supplies)

(cf. 6141 - Curriculum Development and Evaluation)

(cf. 6161.1 - Selection and Evaluation of Instructional Materials)

(cf. 6163.1 - Library Media Centers)

Whenever the Board determines that district students lack sufficient textbooks or instructional materials, the Board shall seek funding opportunities through the state's incentive program and shall comply with all related legal requirements.
