Parents and other members of the school district community may view the instructional and library materials used by the students.  All instructional materials, including teacher’s manuals, films, tapes or other supplementary material which will be used in connection with any survey, analysis, or evaluation as part of any federally funded programs must be available for inspection by parents.

Instructional and library materials may be viewed on school district premises.  Select instructional and library materials include:

  • A catalog of books available in the school library;
  • Electronic textbooks and core materials that are written and published primarily for use in elementary and secondary school instruction, and are required by the classroom teacher for use by students;
  • Relevant portions of required printed textbooks and materials;
  • Any other materials as determined for use by the classroom teacher.

It is the responsibility of the Superintendent to develop administrative regulations regarding the inspection of instructional materials.
