D5 - Public Hearing to approve as advertised the adoption of the 2019-2020 Procedures Manual for Instructional Resources

The 2019-2020 Procedures Manual for Instructional Materials provides information regarding the implementation of state and local policies regarding the process and procedures for adoption, vetting, and the challenge of instructional materials.  The manual serves as a tool for the purpose of standardization of procedures for school and district level staff responsible for instructional materials management.

It is important for all administrative personnel and instructional materials administrators to be familiar with the policies, procedures, and guidelines applicable to instructional materials.  Contents of this document are based on: 1. Current regulations, 2. State and County policies, and 3. Standardized procedures.
