FAIRFIELD — Textbooks costing a total of $253,473 – with most of that amount paying for $229,889 worth of Common Core State Standards-edition English language arts books – are the subject of a public hearing Thursday before Fairfield-Suisun School District trustees.
The remaining $25,584 will go to books for American history, biology and other subjects.
Funding comes from the state lottery and money for instructional materials. The Common Core language arts books are for ninth, 10 and 11th grades.
New instructional materials are submitted to the trustees for adoption after initial review by staff and the public, a report to the school board states. A public viewing of materials recommended for adoption takes place in the Instructional Media Center of Fairfield-Suisun School District from May 22 through Thursday, the report adds.
Trustees meet at 6 p.m. in the central office board room at 2490 Hilborn Road in Fairfield.
