Public Review of Proposed Textbooks

From the SC Department of Education:

The public is invited to review textbooks and instructional materials that have been proposed for use in South Carolina’s public schools.

The instructional materials are on display at twenty-seven colleges and universities throughout the state. The materials will be on display from October 10 to November 22, 2011, with evaluation forms for citizens’ comments available at each site. State Board of Education members will review citizens’ comments before a final decision is made on adopting the materials.

The materials will be recommended to the State Board of Education for adoption on December 8, 2011, by the Instructional Materials Review Panels appointed by the Board. The materials are in the following subject areas:
  • Chinese, Grades 6–12
  • Fashion, Fabric, and Design 1 and 2, Grades 9–12
  • Financial Fitness 1 and 2, Grades 9–12
  • Integrated English Language Arts, Grades K–5
  • Self-Contained Educable Mentally Disabled (Mildly Disabled), Grades K–12
  • Sports Nutrition, Grades 9–12
 The review books are in the atrium area, near the Reference collection.  Please give any reviews to a library staff member and we will forward them on to the State Board of Education.
