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 January 1999, listing.

In addition to the Off-List Listing, the attachments will include pages that provide updated information to the present State-Adopted List of Textbooks and Other Instructional Materials (the red and gray vinyl binders or other binders you may be using). These pages cover substitutions of newer materials, price reductions and ISBN number corrections.

The attachments to this memo will be delivered to you in the next bulk mailing.
