Instructional Resources

State law closely regulates how textbooks are selected and funded, empowering the State Board of Education to select conforming and nonconforming texts.  Moreover, with ever-increasing technological options, traditional textbooks are only one of the many types of instructional material in use in schools.  The following are resources related to textbooks, instructional materials, and copyright.
