Instructional Materials Adoption Process Timeline

 

Public Review Information:

During each Public Review Period, the instructional materials listed within each content area are being recommended for adoption.  This site provides the Pasco County Schools community and other key stakeholders an opportunity to review instructional materials that will be adopted for the coming school year.  The materials selected for review went through a rigorous vetting and review process. In accordance with Florida Statute 1006.283(8)(c), the School Board will consider adopting recommended instructional materials at its meeting on Tuesday, March 5th, at 6:00pm, in the Pasco County School's board room. The recommended materials may be viewed by clicking the links in the table below. 

Thank you for your participation in helping Pasco County Schools review and select the best materials for our students and teachers.

Procedure for Contesting Adoption:
F.S. 1006.28 (3) Each district school board must establish a process by which the parent of a public school student or a resident of the county may contest the district school board’s adoption of a specific instructional material. The parent or resident must file a petition, on a form provided by the school board, within 30 calendar days after the adoption of the material by the school board. The school board must make the form available to the public and publish the form on the school district’s website. The form must be signed by the parent or resident, include the required contact information, and state the objection to the instructional material based on the criteria of s. 1006.31(2) or s. 1006.40(3)(d). Within 30 days after the 30-day period has expired, the school board must, for all petitions timely received, conduct at least one open public hearing before an unbiased and qualified hearing officer. The hearing officer may not be an employee or agent of the school district. The hearing is not subject to the provisions of chapter 120; however, the hearing must provide sufficient procedural protections to allow each petitioner an adequate and fair opportunity to be heard and present evidence to the hearing officer.
