Instructional Materials

In Florida, instructional materials are adopted for specific courses within selected subject areas and grade levels, usually for a period of five years per subject. The Florida Department of Education publishes specifications. These specifications outline the courses and what the standards materials must meet. St. Lucie County Public Schools follows the textbook adoption process from the Florida Department of Education per Florida Statute 1006.34.
