Instructional Materials

Florida adopts instructional materials for specific courses within a selected subject area on a rotating basis. The Florida Department of Education publishes specifications for course materials and standards.  Detailed information is available on the FLDOE website.  

View the list of instructional materials utilized in all of our schools.

We encourage parent and community participation in our adoption process. If you would like to serve on a textbook adoption committee and formally review the resources as a part of the school review team, please contact any school or our office at 904.547.3947.

If you have questions or would like to review available print or digital resources, please submit a Request for Instructional Resource Review or call the Instructional Resources and Media Services office at 904.547.3947. Materials are available for review from 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM when district offices are open.

Please note the following Florida statute that pertains to input regarding instructional materials:

F.S. 1006.28 (2)(a)(2)(a,b) Each district school board must adopt a policy regarding an objection by a parent or a resident of the county to the use of a specific instructional material, which clearly describes a process to handle all objections and provides for resolution.
