Instructional Materials

Instructional Material Adoption
The textbook adoption process includes input from community stakeholders, including teachers and parents. 
The Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) adopts course instructional materials for each subject area and school year. More information on state requirements and procedures for instructional materials can be found on the FLDOE website.

Public Review of Adopted Instructional Materials
Instructional material adoption for the 2021–2022 school year is for K–12 Mathematics. We will be opening up for public review of instructional materials under consideration. The public review will be available digitally and in person from January 3 through January 22, 2022. The public can access the materials digitally, beginning on January 3, 2022, by visiting the the Review Adopted Instructional Materials page linked below.

Members of the public who prefer to review printed materials may visit the Flagler Schools Teaching and Learning Department office. The office is located at 1769 E. Moody Blvd., Building 2, Bunnell, Fl 32110, and visits may be scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Challenge to Non-Adopted Instructional Materials
Parents of a student or residents of the county may challenge instructional materials used in classrooms, school library books, or books on reading lists. Challenged materials must meet the following criteria:
  • Materials that were not subject to the review process during an adoption year including a public notice of a hearing, review and comment procedures (F.S. 1006.28)
We suggest that prior to submitting a challenge, you schedule a meeting with the principal of the school to gain an understanding of how the material is being used. Please complete the linked Request for Reconsideration of Materials form to submit a challenge.
