Summary: School Board Policy IIAA, Learning Resources/Textbook Selection and Adoption, states that the Board delegates the responsibility for the selection and use of learning resources to the professionally trained staff. The Superintendent, or designee, is responsible for the selection of learning resources for division-wide use.

Learning resources are used by teachers to plan, deliver and assess essential understandings of students’ learning and include such items as, but not limited to, on line databases, eBooks, textbooks, tradebooks, reference books, charts/graphs, pictures, curriculum-based software, workbooks, videos, DVD’s, and kits.

Funding: These materials, if approved, will be available for purchase through existing textbook fund allocations.
