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 linked Request for Reconsideration of Materials form to submit a challenge.
