Non-Adopted Reading Lists

When a teacher wishes to introduce instructional material (a novel, for example) to supplement the state adopted materials approved and purchased by the District, the teacher will request that the instructional material be placed on the school's Non-Adopted Reading list.

Non-Adopted reading lists are accessible by visiting each school's website.
