Instructional Materials

Flagler 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.

More information on state requirements and procedures for instructional materials can be found on the Florida Department of Education's website.

Public Review of Adopted Instructional Materials

Instructional material adoption for the 2022–23 school year is for Social Studies. Materials under consideration are made available for public review both digitally and in person. Please see the Instructional Materials Adoption Timeline for public review dates and deadlines.

Challenge to Non-Adopted Instructional Materials

Parents of a student or residents of the county may challenge instructional materials used in classrooms, school library books, or books on reading lists. Challenged materials must meet the following criteria:

Materials that were not subject to the review process during an adoption year including a public notice of a hearing, review, and comment procedures (F.S. 1006.28)

We suggest that prior to submitting a challenge, you schedule a meeting with the principal of the school to gain an understanding of how the material is being used. Please complete the Request for Reconsideration of Materials form to submit a challenge.
