Instructional Materials Review

​​​​Social Studies instructional materials for grades 6 - 12, including Advanced Placement, are being considered for adoption by the School District of Volusia County.  Below are the Volusia County School Board Policy and Florida Statute regulating the process for selection and review, as well as web links to the recommended instructional materials.

School Board Policy 321

Florida Statute states:

​Establish the process by which instructional materials are adopted by the district school board, which must include:

a. A process to allow student editions of recommended instructional materials to be accessed and viewed online by the public at least 20 calendar days before the school board hearing and public meeting as specified in this subparagraph. This process must include reasonable safeguards against the unauthorized use, reproduction, and distribution of instructional materials considered for adoption.

b. An open, noticed school board hearing to receive public comment on the recommended instructional materials.

c. An open, noticed public meeting to approve an annual instructional materials plan to identify any instructional materials that will be purchased through the district school board instructional materials review process pursuant to this section. This public meeting must be held on a different date than the school board hearing.

d. Notice requirements for the school board hearing and the public meeting that must specifically state which instructional materials are being reviewed and the manner in which the instructional materials can be accessed for public review.
