Textbooks available for public review

By From page A4 | February 06, 2013

Several new textbooks are available for public review, preceding formal adoption by the Davis school district. Members of textbook adoption committees — consisting of staff, community members, parents and, at the high school level, students — have determined that these are the titles they will recommend to the Davis Board of Education for adoption consideration.

The cost of texts will come solely from categorical funds that have been specifically designated by the California Department of Education for the purpose of purchasing instructional materials.
