Part XXXIII. Bulletin 1794―State Textbook Adoption Policy and Procedure Manual

Chapter 1. Purpose

§101. Introduction

A. The State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (SBESE), in accordance with Chapter 1 of Title 17 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes of 1950, Part I, Sections 7 (4), 8(A)(1)(a) and Part IV, Section 351(A)(1), has the responsibility to prescribe, adopt, control and supervise the distribution and use of free school books and other materials of instruction in elementary, secondary, special, post secondary and vocational-technical schools across the state of Louisiana. The Louisiana Legislature appropriates funds in accordance with Article VIII, Section 13(A) of the Constitution for the purpose of providing school books and other materials of instruction free of charge to the children of this state at the elementary and secondary levels.

B. It is hoped that the policies and procedures contained in this bulletin will help local school districts to provide textbooks that will have a significant, positive impact on student achievement, student attitudes and behaviors, and on the interactions in the learning environment for students of all ages, abilities, backgrounds and areas of interest. Any interested citizen may request his or her name be placed on the mailing list for textbook adoption information (R.S. 17:415.1.A) by writing to:

Chapter 3. General Provisions

§301. Definitions



Ancillary―materials shall be defined as materials that are intended and designed to be used with a comprehensive basal program submitted by the same publisher and may include materials such as workbooks, puzzles, assessment materials, black line masters, transparencies, etc. Ancillary materials will be added to the publisher's contract after the SBESE's approval of the basal textbook and teacher's edition. These materials shall be limited to instructional materials (see definition herein).

Basal―student-based curricular materials (print or non-print) that encompass the SBESE-approved Louisiana Grade-Level Expectations for specified subject areas. These curricular materials are considered a major teacher and student resource for attainment of the state standards and benchmarks and for the locally designed and aligned curriculum and course. These materials shall be limited to instructional materials (see definition herein).

Blind Persons or other Persons with Print
Disabilities
1―children served under these regulations who may qualify to receive books and other publications produced in specialized formats in accordance with the Act entitled "An Act to Provide Books for the Adult Blind," approved March 3, 1931, 2 U.S.C. 135a (including footnote)

Core Subject Cycle―refers to the adoption period for English/language arts, science, social studies, and mathematics

Instructional Materials―limited to items having intellectual content that by design assist in the instruction of a subject or course. Instructional Materials may be transmitted via "storage mechanisms" (such as CD-ROMs, DVDs, flash drives, etc.), but "delivery mechanisms" (such as iPods, laptops, whiteboards, etc.) shall not be included in the adopted materials. Instructional Materials may be available in bound, unbound, bundled or package form and may consist of hardbound or softbound textbooks, consumables, manipulatives, electronic media, and computer courseware or software. Instructional Materials do not include electronic or computer hardware even if such hardware is bundled with software or other electronic media, nor does it include equipment or supplies.

National Instructional Materials Access Center (NIMAC)―the center established in section 674(e) of the Act, through the American Printing House for the Blind (APH), not later than one year after the date of enactment of IDEA. NIMAC's duties are:

1. to receive and maintain a catalog of print instructional materials prepared in the NIMAS, as established by the secretary, made available to such center by the textbook publishing industry, state educational agencies (SEAs), and LEAs;

2. to provide access to print instructional materials, including textbooks, in accessible media, free of charge, to blind or other persons with print disabilities in elementary schools and secondary schools, in accordance with such terms and procedures as the NIMAC may prescribe;

3. to develop, adopt and publish procedures to protect against copyright infringement, with respect to the print instructional materials provided in Sections 612(a)(23) and 613(a) (6) of the Act.



National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard (NIMAS)―given that term in Section 674(e)(3)(B) of the Act (NIMAS means the standard established by the secretary to be used in the preparation of electronic files suitable and used solely for efficient conversion into specialized formats).

Print Instructional Materials―to be printed textbooks and related printed core materials that are written and published primarily for use in elementary school and secondary school instruction and are required by a SEA or LEA for use by students in the classroom.

Specialized Formats―that term in section 674(e)(3)(D) of the Act (Specialized format means Braille, audio, or digital text which is exclusively for use by blind or other persons with disabilities; and with respect to print instructional materials, includes large print formats when such materials are distributed exclusively for use by blind or other persons with disabilities).

Teacher's Edition―shall be defined as materials used for informing teachers' instruction and are not designed or intended to be used by students. Teacher's editions may include teacher guides or instructor's manuals.

Textbook―any medium or material (print or non-print), book, or electronic medium that constitutes the principal source for teaching and learning in a specified subject area. A textbook shall be a systematically organized core of stand alone instructional materials (which may be hardbound, softbound, electronic or other media) designed to support the teaching and learning of a curriculum based on the SBESE-approved Grade-Level Expectations or state curricular guides (e.g., home economics, foreign language, health, business education). These materials shall be limited to instructional materials (see definition herein).

Timely Manner―at the same time as non-disabled peers.

1The Library of Congress regulations (36 CFR 701.6(b)(1)) related to the Act to Provide Books for the Adult Blind (approved March 3, 1931, 2 U.S.C. 135a) provide that "blind persons or other persons with print disabilities" include: (i) Blind persons whose visual acuity, as determined by competent authority, is 20/200 or less in the better eye with correcting glasses, or whose widest diameter if visual field subtends an angular distance no greater than 20 degrees. (ii) Persons whose visual disability, with correction and regardless of optical measurement, is certified by competent authority as preventing the reading of standard printed material. (iii) Persons certified by competent authority as unable to read or unable to use standard printed material as a result of physical limitations. (iv) Persons certified by competent authority as having a reading disability resulting from organic dysfunction and of sufficient severity to prevent their reading printed material in a normal manner. Competent authority is defined in 36 CFR 701.6(b)(2) as follows: (i) In cases of blindness, visual disability, or physical limitations "competent authority" is defined to include doctors of medicine, doctors of osteopathy, ophthalmologists, optometrists, registered nurses, therapists, professional staff of hospitals, institutions, and public or welfare agencies (e.g., social workers, case workers, counselors, rehabilitation teachers, and superintendents). (ii) In the case of a reading disability from organic dysfunction, competent authority is defined as doctors of medicine who may consult with colleagues in associated disciplines.
