• Instructional Materials
    Nassau County Schools’ K–12 curriculum is composed of a wide range of textbooks and other instructional materials. Each school year, the district adopts a new curriculum in one major subject area according to the state of Florida's instructional materials adoption cycle. The instructional material adoption process includes opportunities for the public to review materials, provide feedback, and submit requests for the reconsideration of adopted 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 Florida Department of Education website.
