Petaluma City Schools | BP 6161 Instruction
Equipment, Books And Materials
The Board of Education 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 designee shall develop procedures for determining the obsolescence of instructional materials. When new materials have been chosen in accordance with the district's selection and evaluation policy 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.
