Adoption of Instructional Materials; a Report to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
Under current California law, instructional materials for grades one through eight must be adopted and selected before being printed or purchased and distributed to schools, a procedure known as the adoption cycle. A recent committee report recommended that the adoption cycle be reduced from 26 to 15 months. A review of the process revealed that the cycle could be reduced to 20 months through minor modifications of procedures; however, reduction to a 15-month cycle would require rethinking of present role relationships and statewide policy. Time/activity charts are provided. (EMH)
