School districts sometimes exercise the flexibility in the Arkansas Code by selecting textbooks and other instructional materials other than those on the state-adopted lists. When requests for off-list materials are received, the Department of Education negotiates state contracts with publishing companies. Once a state contract is in place, it serves not only the requesting district but all districts throughout the state.

An updated Off-List Listing accompanies this memorandum. This listing replaces the July 1998, listing.

The other enclosures are addendums that provide information to update the present State-adopted List of Textbooks and other Instructional Materials (the red and gray vinyl binders). These addenda cover substitutions of new materials made by publishers, price reductions and some ISBN number corrections.

There are attachments to this memo and they will be delivered to you in the next bulk mailing.
