Textbook Adoption
Rationale: 

Background Information:

Each year our system reviews new textbooks in a particular curriculum area for adoption.  This year we had fourteen (14) committees consisting of classroom teachers, parents, and the Secondary Curriculum Director reviewing textbooks.  The curriculum and instructional areas reviewed this year were Science, PE/Wellness/Health, and Fine Arts (Art, Music, Theatre Arts, Dance, and Media Arts).   The Career & Technical Education areas reviewed this year were Anatomy & Physiology, Arts, and A/V Technology & Communications.  (Section C of the Tennessee Textbook Adoption Cycle.)

Recommendation:

I recommend that Sullivan County do a Blanket Textbook Adoption.  Districts are required to adopt textbook materials from the approved textbook list or submit a waiver to purchase textbook materials not on the approved list.  This year several of the curriculum areas did not have any companies that submitted a textbook for review.    This process allows our district to adopt textbooks and materials that better fit the needs of our students.   I further recommend that textbooks that are not being used in this adoption cycle be declared surplus.
