Publication Sales

The mission of NCDPI's Online Publication Sales is to provide manuals and support materials produced by the NC Department of Public Instruction to schools, educators and the public at production cost. Most materials are available for download in the catalog and may be printed locally. When possible, we print or buy in bulk to lower prices to the districts.

Please note: We ship orders twice a week, typically on Tuesdays and Fridays. If you have an urgent need for an order, please email
