MCPS regularly reviews and adopts material for use in classroom instruction. The Virginia Board of Education published a list of textbooks for each grade level and subjects that are correlated with the Virginia Standards of Learning. The Montgomery County School Board adopts textbooks for use in the school division. At time, the School Board may adopt books that are not on the state-adopted list, provided the selection is in accordance with specified guidelines.
For 2016-17, MCPS will review and adopt textbooks in the following areas:
- 9-12 Science Elective
- Health 6-10
- Automotive Mechanics
View the full list of recommended textbooks with links to online previews.
Public comment on the textbooks is open until April 18. MCPS will have a room available to view the online previews of the textbooks on April 11 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
