605.00 – Selection of Instructional Materials

The Board has the sole discretion to approve instructional materials for the District. This authority is delegated to licensed employees to determine which instructional materials will be recommended for utilization and purchase by the District. When licensed employees make these selections, they will review the materials for instructional relevance, age appropriateness, profanity, sexual explicitness, and/or violence. The Board will make the final decision after receiving a recommendation from the Superintendent/designee.

In reviewing instructional materials for continued use and in selecting additional materials, licensed employees will consider the current and future needs of the District as well as changes and trends in education and society. It is the responsibility of the Superintendent/designee to report to the Board the action taken by licensed employees. 

Materials given to the District must meet the criteria established herein. The gift must be received in compliance with Board Policy 802.07 Gifts, Donations, Grants, and Bequests.
