Call for PPEL 101 Textbook Review Committee Members

The Tucson Unified School District department of Curriculum, Instruction, & Professional Development invites you to participate in our latest Textbook Review for PPEL 101 Text: Ethics, Economy, & Entrepreneurship
If you are interested in participating, please complete this form by 9 a.m., Wednesday, September 19, 2018.

As required by State law, the Board will have final approval and adopt all new textbooks, supplementary course books, E-textbooks and course software.  The Superintendent shall establish textbook selection procedures that shall provide for the appropriate involvement of staff members, students, and community members.  These procedures may provide for the establishment of textbook selection committees.  Recommendations from textbook selection committees will be forwarded to the Superintendent.

  • A copy of each textbook that is being considered for selection shall be made available at the school district office for review by the public, for a period of sixty days prior to formal selection of textbooks.
  • Textbooks, supplementary course books, E-textbooks and course software for common schools recommended by textbook selection committees will be placed on display in the District office for a period of at least sixty (60) days prior to the meeting at which the Board will consider their adoption. Supplemental materials may also be approved by Assistant Superintendents and brought to the Governing Board for final approval.
  • Final recommendations for the adoption of core and supplemental instructional materials will be submitted to the Board in a time frame to which instructional materials can be approved and ordered prior to the start of the course(s).
  • In recommending books, the committees will strive for continuity of textbooks throughout the different grades and use the same book series in all classes of the same grade. Exceptions to this must be approved by the Superintendent.

See Board Policy IJJ and Regulation IJJ-R for more information.

We will let you know if you have been selected to participate as a Review Committee Member.

Thank you for your interest and for supporting Tucson Unified School District!
