10. I think that the textbook that my child/class is using is ineffective. With whom can I address my concern?

The Arizona Department of Education does not endorse or approve specific curriculums, books or courses of study and does not have approved textbook lists. As long as the governing board of a district approves the book and it helps meet the standards, it may be adopted.

Ask to address the governing school board at a public meeting, or ask to become part of the curriculum committee. Approving textbooks should be a community effort, and input is usually welcome
