  • The selection committee is trained in the instructional materials evaluation process.  Both print and digital resources are sampled and reviewed during the evaluation process.
  • The selection committee evaluates submissions using criteria compatible with those established by the Florida Department of Education, including criteria aligned with the State Standards where appropriate.
  • For the adoption of a major tool of instruction, the selection committee recommends no more than two selections to be placed on a ballot for a districtwide, subject-area teacher vote. 
  • For the adoption of supplemental instructional materials, the selection committee may make a final recommendation for adoption by the School Board.
• Improve the high school graduation rate • Provide a student-centered learning environment that engages every child
