Textbook Adoption Community Review

It is the legal responsibility of the Board of Education to approve all textbooks used as part of the educational program of this District. No such textbook will be approved which is not on a list duly filed in the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction. (2510)

The Superintendent shall develop administrative guidelines for the selection and maintenance of all educational and instructional materials and equipment. The guidelines shall include a plan for the review of instructional materials by staff and parents. (2520)

In an effort to engage parents and community members and following board policy, the Vandalia-Butler City Schools has created a section of our website detailing curriculum and textbooks being considered for use in our schools.  All items up for adoption will be posted on this site and made available for public review.  We welcome your feedback on these materials. 

To be a part of this process, community members can review the items for 21 days at the Board of Education offices, 500 S. Dixie Dr. during normal business hours (M-F 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.). Upon reviewing the materials, comments can be sent to Brandon Hartley, Director of Curriculum at brandon.hartley@vbcsd.com

We welcome your input as we continue to research new sources and types of classroom materials to provide our students with the very best educational experience.
