605.2 Instructional Materials Inspection

INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS INSPECTION

Parents and other members of the school district community may view the instructional materials used by the students.  All instructional materials, including teacher's manuals, films, tapes or other supplementary material which will be used in connection with any survey, analysis, or evaluation as part of any federally funded programs must be available for inspection by parents. 

 The instructional materials must be viewed on school district premises.  Copies may be obtained according to board policy.

It is the responsibility of the superintendent to develop administrative regulations regarding the inspection of instructional materials.

 

 

NOTE:  This is a mandatory policy and reflects federal law on the subject of parental rights to inspect instructional materials.  For more detailed discussion of this issue, see IASB's Policy Primer, Vol. 20 #1-August 31, 2007.
