Official Reviews - Section IV

These programs were reviewed by Tennessee teachers using Tennessee standards and considering the needs of Tennessee classrooms. We make no claims regarding the suitability of any of these programs for classrooms outside Tennessee.

Public Comments

The state also sought input from the public through access to hard-copy materials at 10 collection sites and through online access provided by the publishers.  The department announces when the textbooks are available for public review at the collection sites during the state textbook review and approval process. The public can view textbooks at the same time as the state review committees are analyzing them, prior to the approval of the books. The public can submit feedback on the books and their input is sent to the publishers and the Textbook Commission for their consideration during the approval process. The public can continue to view and submit feedback on the approved textbooks at the 10 district collection sites year-round. The commission is exploring moving the submission process online to ease public access in the future.
