All instructional materials and equipment of the district will be classified and catalogued according to an acceptable system. Textbooks will be made available to all children in sufficient quantity and at appropriate levels so that they are optimally useful to each child, and so that every teacher can meet both the planned curriculum sequence of the district and the special instructional needs of the children.

All textbooks purchased and in the possession of the district will be district property. Principals will be responsible for textbooks assigned to teachers, and for conducting an inventory of all books at the end of the school year.

Each teacher will keep an accurate record of books issued to their pupils. When a textbook is damaged or lost, the pupil responsible will be required to pay for the damage or another copy.

Every book issued will bear the stamp of the district.

All media materials and equipment will be adequately maintained. Obsolete materials and worn-out equipment will be replaced on a regular basis.

Loan of Textbooks to Nonpublic Schools

In accordance with state law, the Board may approve the loan of nonsectarian textbooks to students enrolled in nonpublic schools in the district.
